The Bedford Lions Club, in partnership with the Afya Foundation, delivers life-saving medical supplies, equipment, and humanitarian goods to those in need around the world.

Afya means “health” in Kishwahili (aka Swahili)

All types of durable medical equipment and medical supplies including CPAPs, adult diapers, crutches, canes, walkers, transport chairs and some wheelchairs are needed, however:

  • NO: Electric wheelchairs
  • NO: Hospital beds
  • NO: Commodes/toilets
  • NO: Pharmaceuticals or medications
  • NO: Expired supplies

Bring your donations to the Bedford Transfer Station (77 Chubbuck Road), near the Recycling area any time the Station is open.  A member of the Bedford Lions Club will pick up and deliver to Afya in Yonkers, NY.  From there, Afya will distribute your donations to the area most in need of supplies.

Any questions, contact Bedford Lion Mike Sills: (603) 714-0269
