Connecticut’s Bridge Foundation Delivering Medical Assistance to Lebanon

Monday, 30 September 2013 00:00

BEIRUT, LEBANON -- Bridge Foundation, the New Canaan, Connecticut-based humanitarian relief organization announced it is sending much-needed medical supplies to Lebanon. In a country of roughly 4.5 million people, Lebanon now has almost 1 in 5 inhabitants living as refugees.

The continuing civil war in Syria is putting an enormous strain on the Lebanon healthcare infrastructure -- to the point of collapse. The supplies will be shipped from Bridge Foundation's warehouse in Amsterdam.

The supplies will help the faltering healthcare system as Lebanon struggles to accommodate their rising population. Bridge Foundation's shipment will include antibiotics, antibacterials, antimicrobials, anti-tuberculin agents and vitamins.

"At Bridge Foundation, we have been preparing our support structure for Lebanon since we visited there back in April this year," said Bridge Managing Director, Gary Galanis.

"We are proud to work with your partners, the Georges N. Frem Foundation, with whom we have worked with in the past," added Stephen Skakel, Bridge Co-Founder and Managing Director. "Their Foundation is an amazing asset to the Lebanon. Their ability to get the job done well and efficiently cannot be overstated."

The shipment is scheduled to depart on Thursday September 19th from the Netherlands.

By partnering with the Georges N. Frem Foundation, Bridge Foundation is working closely with the Beirut-based organization on additional shipments.
