Disaster Relief Efforts

Afya is uniquely positioned as a nimble and proactive first responder, a hub, in times of urgent need. Our tenacious approach to relief has allowed us to circumvent harrowing conditions to deliver comprehensive aid to those most in need, ultimately bridging the gap between life and death.

Afya works with healthcare professionals and the infrastructure of the impacted region to identify the specific, pressing healthcare needs “on the ground.” This is an essential step that allows us to provide just what’s needed to address critical health, surgical and humanitarian needs when disasters strike.

As part of our disaster relief efforts, Afya has sent 3 million pounds of emergency supplies to Haiti, Japan, Pakistan, Greece, Syria, and Puerto Rico following the occurrence of severe natural disasters.
