“What I enjoyed about working at the AFYA foundation is that the people that work here are really nice and quite fun to be around with. By working at the warehouse, I was able to find and discover new things that I never knew about, such as: organizing medical supplies, finding out how each item plays a role in helping those that are injured and most of all being able to work with my neighbors. Not only that, I was also able to share some of my created artwork with the people around me as well developing the AFYA book which is a big-time project and is a manual with instructions for how to do the tasks that the volunteers help with (sorting, checking expiration dates, counting and quality control)” Traore F.
