“Think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege.” -John D. Rockefeller Jr.
Are you interested in giving to Afya’s life-saving work but seeking a more substantial and specific way to do so? Consider sponsoring one of Afya’s current projects:
- Safe Births in Ghana (link or anchor-link to case)
- Stock health centers in war-torn Syria (link or anchor-link to case)
- Support Puerto Rico’s post-hurricane recovery (link or anchor-link to case)
Or maybe you’re ready to run your own fundraising campaign for a specific recipient that could benefit from Afya’s support. If you identify a hospital, health center or community organization in need, Afya may be able to help.
This is exactly what Deb Rechler did when she coordinated her own fundraising campaign to support an institution close to her heart – the Rift Valley Children’s Village in Tanzania. The Rift Valley Children’s Village provides a permanent and loving home for 97 orphaned and at-risk children.
Deb reached out to friends, family, and colleagues to request donations. Ultimately, she collected enough to fund a full shipping container of supplies for RVCV worth more than $150,000. Supplies included items that were essential to the functioning of the orphanage – everything from bedsheets, and heaters, to shoes and birthday presents. In addition, AFYA sourced dental set-ups and a dental chair, as well as equipment and supplies for the Fame clinic in Karatu, Tanzania another wonderful organization dedicated to “advancing patient-centered care in rural Africa.
Through Deb’s efforts, AFYA was able to fill a holistic container that recognized the medical and humanitarian needs at RVCV and another local facility in Tanzania. Her work and investment will have a tangible and life changing/saving impact on thousands in Tanzania.
