Afya Foundation

Unverified non-profit organisation

The Afya Foundation is an NGO based in New York. Established in 2007 by Danielle Butin, MPH, OTR after a trip to Tanzania, the Foundation seeks to spread “Good Health Through Giving,” and does so by providing medical supplies, consumables, sustainable equipment, and community outreach supplies to international health clinics.

The organisation collects donations of surplus medical supplies from New York hospitals, stores them temporarily in the Yonkers warehouse until volunteers load them into 40 foot containers bound for various international locations.

Afya also assembles custom designed and packed medical duffel bags for health professionals travelling abroad in life-saving missions.
