  • Custom Containers: Supplies for Life

    Afya first asks that recipient hospitals and clinics create a “wish-list” of the supplies and equipment they need. Afya then uses its broad network of donors to do its best to match these requested items.

Pink hats colored the sky scape, brilliant signs were held high and we sang songs of justice and perseverance. The men who walked hand in hand with this sisterhood intermittently called out “her body her choice” and women responded “my body my choice” in a strong and impressive harmony of reciprocity.
