What They Do:
The Afya Foundation, www.afyafoundation.org is a non-profit medical supply recovery organization (MSRO) located in Yonkers, New York. We collect no-longer-needed and still-usable medical and humanitarian supplies form hospitals, nursing homes, corporations and individuals, and ship them in sea cargo containers to our well-established on-the-ground partners in Haiti, African and Caribbean nations.
Their Three Major Goals:
1. To improve quality and access to healthcare services in the developing world;
2. To provide a simple mechanism for US based healthcare institutions and professionals to contribute to both global health and increased access;
3. To reduce the environmental impact in our own country, by diverting “waste” from landfills and incineration, to the most underserved people in other countries who are in need of these items.
