Afya is an amazing organization. Everyone who works there is very friendly, and you can tell that they care deeply about the work they are doing. Afya is a not-for-profit organization that sends medical supplies and humanitarian supplies abroad to African nations and Haiti. Everyday, tons of these supplies are sent and make a huge difference in many peoples lives. I am working on their new Birth Kit Campaign, a campaign that collects beanies, blankets, hand sanitizer, soap, and other supplies necessary for a successful child birth. These supplies are sent to Guatemala and Liberia to help rural midwives. I love working on this campaign and knowing that no matter what I do at Afya I am making a difference.
