Luggage for Life – Cape Town

You can change a life in Cape Town, one bag at a time. Simply bring an Afya duffel filled with medical supplies.

Afya’s Luggage for Life program will import medical supplies for the frail and elderly that are needed by Ikamva. Our partnership will vastly improve the clinical capacity of the community health providers who visit families in their homes, follow up on patients with recent medical crises and attend to the needs of the entire community in helping to care for their elders.

AFYA’S GLOBAL HEALTH SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM FOR HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS AND SENIORS

Afya Foundation is hosting a one-week intensive summer internship for high school junior and senior students committed to global health.

These opportunities are designed for the students to learn about global health issues through targeted lectures. The application of their growing knowledge will result in a hands-on project dedicated to Afya’s mission to help eliminate health disparities in medically underserved communities.
