Description of Organization:

Afya rescues unused medical supplies and equipment from hospitals, nursing homes, corporations, and individuals in the greater NYC area to support ongoing health initiatives worldwide. They maintain a robust inventory that is poised for agile urgent and disaster response efforts. In the past 10 years, Afya has worked in more than 75 nations, and has delivered more than 8 million pounds worth approximately $34 million of donated medical supplies, equipment and humanitarian provisions to some of the most underserved people in the world. Their reliability and efficiency have led to partnerships with other organizations that represent program excellence in the international healthcare sector. The access to 2,500 volunteers each year enables Afya to coordinate and mobilize tens of thousands of donated volunteer hours spent sorting and packing supplies for urgently needed shipments.
