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. Remember that Afya does not ship pharmaceutical medications.
Option 1: Research a clinic close to your hotel, 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 duffel at the warehouse, 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!
