REFUGEE CRISIS

The Afya Foundation has a proven track record, with the support of its expansive gift-in-kind donor network, to serve as a first responder activating relief during health-related crises, natural and humanitarian disasters worldwide.

We accomplish this by:

1. Conducting needs assessments with on the ground health care providers to ensure supplies shipped are vitally needed

2. Expediting shipments of medical supplies and humanitarian provisions to effected areas in times of disaster

We have proven successful engagement and partnerships with state, national and federal governments, the U.N. and foreign dignitaries to ensure shipments of supplies and materials are efficiently delivered to where they are needed most.
