Luggage for Life
AFYA’s Luggage for Life program offers yet another way to get essential medical supplies to underserved health systems.
Whether you are traveling on a medical mission, family vacation, part of a group trip to volunteer in a remote village, or studying abroad, the Afya Foundation’s Luggage for Life program is a great way for travelers to make a powerful impact in the world.
Over 1500 luggage for life duffel bags have been delivered worldwide!
Delivering a Luggage for Life duffel bag is an extremely valuable and rewarding experience. It combines travel, philanthropy, and heart.
One duffel bag of supplies changes and saves lives!
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.
