Yonkers Group Organizes Aid to Nepal

Please donate funds, supplies and/or help us sort through and package goods collected for shipment to Nepal

Afya Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Yonkers, New York. It was founded in 2007 by Danielle Butin, MPH, OTR after a trip to Tanzania, where she encountered the dire circumstances and severely limited medical resources of their medical clinics. Afya, which means "good health" in Swahili 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

We are sending air cargo and containers and are collecting the following items which will be distributed throughout Nepal

Wound Dressing Supplies
Surgical Tools (general and orthopedic)
Glucometers and non-expired matching test strips
Personal Hygiene Items
Powdered Infant Formula
Water Filters
Cleaning Supplies
Tools (shovels, pick axes, work gloves)

Please deliver or ship donated supplies to The Afya Foundation warehouse, located at:

Yonkers, NY 10701
