    We made it through another week! This Friday, we are featuring Evans as our Human of Afya! Evans works in the warehouse; when donated medical supplies arrive, he checks the boxes, gives material to volunteers to sort, and then later arranges the boxes to keep them moving through the warehouse.


    His favorite part of working for Afya is preparing shipments of medical supplies and equipment!


    Evans values helping people around the world, working hard, and having a good heart. Thanks, Evans, for all your hard work!!

    Last month, Afya made a huge delivery to our partners in South Africa at @ikamva_labantu. This incredible organization provides education, health care, and activities for children and elders in post-Apartheid Cape Town.


    We delivered a huge amount of durable medical equipment, like hospice beds and wheelchairs, so that they can keep the elders in their community safe and comfortable.


    We will be delivering additional medical supplies and equipment to our partners at Ikamva Labantu again! Sign up for our email newsletter on our website so you can stay up to date!

    It’s Friday again, and we are celebrating our Human of Afya, Briana! Briana is volunteering at Afya this summer by sorting PPE and other essential medical supplies. Briana is also committed to learning new work skills at Afya.  


    Briana ensures that all supplies are accurately counted and labelled for shipment. She says, “It is so fun to meet other people who want to give back during this time. I feel like a part of something bigger and I love helping others that are in need.” Thank you, Briana!


    There is still time for you to sign up to volunteer this summer, too! Check out the link in our bio to learn how to volunteer either in person or remotely!

    Here is our first Human of Afya of Summer 2020! Fay is a full-time ICU nurse in the burn unit but still finds time to volunteer at Afya. She strongly values life as a nurse and pushing a patient to stay alive. There are all kinds of patients with different circumstances and helping them survive is all she hopes to do.


    She says of her time at Afya: “I love that Afya holds true to fulfilling their global health mission in helping people in need. The founder saw there were medical supplies needed globally and that’s exactly what this organization does. Volunteers are given the opportunity to help Afya make the world a better place”


    Her mother always told her “Once there’s life, there’s hope” and it’s a quote she lives by everyday as a nurse and Afya volunteer. Fay, you inspire us!
