For this year’s day of service we went to the AFYA organization. AFYA deals with medical supplies that are being thrown away, but still could be good. AFYA sends these still good medical supplies to places in need all over the world, for example: Syria and Haiti. Six advisories went to AFYA for service day. We looked through lots of medical supplies and put the good medical supplies in bags and through out the expired ones.
I learned that some thrown away medical supplies could still be repuroposed and used. I think that the work they are doing is great, but I think that more volunteers would be beneficial, because we did the amount of work it would take one person to do in approximately 20 days. I think they could also find a better way to sort the medical supplies becuase so much of it gets thrown away.
