Afya's mission is to improve global health by rescuing surplus medical supplies and delivering them to underserved health systems around the world. Our triad of objectives includes:To improve the quality of and access to healthcare in underserved communities while providing a simple mechanism for US healthcare institutions and professionals to improve global health standards.To reduce the environmental impact in our own country by diverting "waste" from landfills and incineration.To provide unique and structured opportunities for local volunteers from vulnerable populations to engage in altruistic activities.
Come help us sort through donated consumable, personal care, surgical and medical supplies. We have a 15,000 square feet warehouse in Yonkers, NY where volunteers help us sort and organize items donated items to be shipped to Africa or the Caribbean nations. These critical medical supplies and equipment aids countries devastated by natural disasters and supports our long-term programs to address chronic health disparities in developing nations.
