(Yonkers, NY)  #TheCapCares volunteers will sort and organize life-saving medical supplies in Afya’s Yonkers warehouse. Your hands will be the last to touch these supplies before they head to a site of care in need.  Volunteers must be vaccinated and 15 years old or younger must be accompanied by parent/guardian.

Since 2008, the Afya Foundation has been fulfilling its mission to improve healthcare delivery in underserved communities around the world.  Afya accomplishes this goal by coordinating with local medical professionals on the ground and facilitating customized shipments of rescued surplus medical supplies and equipment that improve local health systems. Our regional network of medical supply donors and volunteers enables Afya to meet immediate humanitarian needs in areas devastated by natural disaster or public health crises in tandem with our long-term programs to address chronic health disparities.
