For day of service, five advisories participated in sorting medical supplies for AFYA. AFYA is an organization that recovers unused medical supplies from hospitals, sorts and ships them to 56 countries around the world. They allow countries who cannot afford advanced medical supplies to get what they need, and have collected and shipped $26 million worth of medical supplies. This experience made me aware of the fact that so many other people around the world are not able to get the medical care they need, and it made me want to find more ways to give back to other communities who have much less than we do. After completing our service, I noticed how many more boxes were surrounded by us, and really wanted to come back and help sort. By sorting those medical supplies, so many people are now able to receive the medical care they need, and I’m glad that I was part of the effort.
