If you are traveling to the Bahamas for a medical or other type of disaster relief work, the Afya Foundation is at the ready to support you and your efforts to help those immeasurably impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
We have duffel bags packed with a customized list from the Bahamas Minister of Health to ensure the duffels contents meet the needs of the people in need. The medical items in the duffel have been prioritized, prepared and packed for your ease. There is NO cost to you as the American-Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is generously underwriting the costs. Help us to help those in Abaco and Grand Bahamas Islands by delivering critical medical supplies to people in tremendous need of them.
Here's How It Works
Identify a clinic abroad for delivery
Pick a destination clinic for the delivery of bags and ask the clinic for a list of supplies needed (to be packed in the duffel bag).
It is vital to ask the recipient clinic for a list of supplies. Afya does not ship pharmaceutical medications
Option 1: Research a clinic close to your hotel and contact the clinic and ask for a list of supplies needed.
Option 2: Contact your hotel concierge and ask if they have a recommendation for a clinic and determine if you or the concierge will contact the clinic for the list of requested supplies.
Pack your own duffel, or receive one by mail
If supplies are mailed to you for re-packing, the box will include supplies, a customs clearance letter, and a duffel bag for repacking.
Bring the full duffel on your flight and hand-deliver it to the facility in need. Connect with the local community and improve global health.
