Novus graciously supports and Mr. Alvarado proudly serves on the Board of Trustees of the Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF). BBF began in 1958 as a dream of a few to help the many around the world who lack good healthcare, education and nutrition. From the beginning its founder and leading spirit, Robert A. Hingson, M.D., urged that BBF’s resources be shared with local counterpart organizations in developing countries that shared the common desire to help those in need.
In the following 60 years, BBF has helped people in 149 countries, working through and in partnership with local agencies that want to help their own people. Included in this partnership are local institutions such as hospitals and universities, healthcare, education and other services, local religious organizations, rotary clubs, professional societies, and many others. Together with partners in the United States and other more affluent countries, BBF has provided over $4 Billion in goods and services that includes 107,000 tons of medical supplies, text books, seeds, and food that have touched many tens of millions with better health, education, nutrition, material security, and hope.
