    Happy Friday, Afya family! Today our #HumansofAfya is Alice, a volunteer retired OR nurse.


    Alice started volunteering in the warehouse in May. She helps with lotting the donated medical equipment and making sure the equipment gets packed in the correct boxes before they are shipped.


    Her favorite part about volunteering at Afya is that she is allowed the opportunity to use her time to do something useful and helpful to millions of people across the world! Thank you, Alice!!

    Afya has sent four shipments of medical supplies and equipment to partners across four Native American tribes and five states out west, including @coreresponse, @lakota_children, @adoptanativeelder, @johnshopkinscaih, and the Annie Wauneka Life Care Center. During this time of crisis, we are focused on serving the most vulnerable and will continue to find ways to do so.


    Today, we feature a blog post from one of our volunteers, Elliott Yancy @mowge_ , breaking down the history of healthcare for Native Americans and how Covid-19 has impacted their elderly populations. Please check it out, learn more, and share with your friends. Link in bio.

    Afya has so many cool programs that support our community, and one of them is our Occupational Therapy Student Training Program! We give Occupational Therapy Students at @nyuniversity @dominicanu and @mercycollege the opportunity to complete practical work experience in the warehouse.


    OTs teach folks with different physical and mental abilities how to operate, adapt, and engage in the workplace. We have many different communities and groups come to Afya to volunteer, and the OTs help them all!


    Here is the cohort of summer OT students, Melissa, Miranda, Wes, Luz, Jessica and Annabel! Thanks so much to these folks for choosing to pursue an incredible profession that truly helps others and for choosing to spend your time at Afya!!

    Here’s a picture and note from our friend @jadenaa, a nurse and superwoman at NYU Langone Hospital — Brooklyn: •

    “When I tell my foundation we need help, they’re faster than a speeding train. Thank you @afyafoundation for continually saving us. Because of you, I have less fear that my family will see me. I have less fear that my team will fall ill. We love you guys. ❤️”


    We love you too, Joe Lyn!!! •

    Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17th at 5pm, for this special Virtual Event! Founder and CEO Danielle Butin will fill our community in on Afya's work this year, connect our community together, and tell you all about Afya's plans for 2021.


    It has been a trying few months for all as Covid-19 has impacted our communities in unimaginable ways. It is during these tough times that we all must support one another and look out for those in need.


    Throughout Covid-19, Afya has delivered vital PPE to partners in our New York community, around the US, and across the globe. We've completed over 400 shipments, delivered over 2 million masks, and responded to devastation and distress with compassion and resilience.
