For my last post about AFYA, I thought it was fitting to go to the warehouse in Yonkers. There, I met Danielle Butin, the Founder of AFYA and the volunteers who sort, pack, store and label the myriad of medical equipment and supplies that will be sent to developing countries.
At Afya, our focus is not on the politics of the situation, but on the thousands of men, women, and especially children, who, due to horrendous circumstances in their home countries, are pushed to migrate in order to find a better life for themselves and for their families, but more often just to survive.
