BERWYN, Pa., March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tyco Electronics Ltd. (NYSE: TEL; BSX: TEL) today presented a donation of $25,000 to the Fisher House Foundation to support the construction of a new Fisher House(TM) at Womack Army Medical Center, Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. Joe Donahue, senior vice president of Tyco Electronics and head of the company's Global Automotive business unit, and Chauncey Callaway, a Tyco Electronics materials manager associate who just returned from a one-year company leave of absence to serve with the U.S. Army Reserves in Iraq, presented the check to LTC Jessie Tucker, chief of staff of Womack Army Medical Center.

Donahue said, "Tyco Electronics and its employees recognize and respect the contributions and sacrifices the men and women of our Armed Forces make daily around the world to keep our country safe. We are grateful for their service. Fisher Houses across the country provide an invaluable service to the families of injured and ill service men and women, and Tyco Electronics is pleased to contribute to the construction of a new Fisher House here at Ft. Bragg."

The new Fisher House at Ft. Bragg will provide 12 living suites, an increase of 50 percent compared to the current building, and will be 100-percent handicapped accessible. Groundbreaking is slated for May 2008.

Tyco Electronics employs over 3,400 people in North Carolina, and approximately 500 at its facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The company has a long history of supporting its U.S. employees who are called into military service, providing -- among other benefits -- continuation of full company pay during an employee's first year of activation.

ABOUT FISHER HOUSE

The Fisher House(TM) program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. Built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers, these homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times -- during hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease or injury. Currently there are 38 Fisher Houses located on 18 military installations and nine VA medical centers.
