"Bridge Foundation is proud to deliver much needed supplies to aid the people of China during this difficult time," said Andrew Hannah, Bridge Foundation Chairman.

The shipment is scheduled to depart on Monday May 19th from the Netherlands. Bridge Foundation will be partnering with Manual C. Menendez, Chairman of MCM Group Holdings and 8M8 LLC who has been active in China for almost 30 years and one of his clients, City University of Seattle, who were instrumental at making the shipment to Chengdu happen. "When disaster strikes and people are in need it is the responsibility of those who are capable to respond quickly and without political agendas......we must ease the suffering of others with giving and compassion" said Mr. Menendez. The shipment will be consigned to Chengdu Children's Hospital with the assistance of Sichuan Airlines.

Donations are requested to assist in providing additional support to the region. Days after the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck, more than 147 aftershocks have been registered which continue to cause concern for those responding to the unprecedented disaster.
