The AFCA warehouse depends on donations of medical supplies and money to ship containers of supplies to program partners in Africa. Our warehouse, located in Lebanon, Pennsylvania is run by one of our extraordinary volunteers, Betsy Dorsey. In this episode, Jen chats with Betsy about her volunteer experience with AFCA, and what drew her to step into this role.

If you’d like to help us pack a container, organize supplies or get in some service hour requirements, our warehouse will gladly accept your help. You can reach out to Betsy directly to schedule your time, or event at

We have a laundry list of donation needs, but would be thrilled to receive infant incubators, hospital beds, and medical supplies-especially for maternal health and safe baby deliveries.

If you’re a sewer, we’ll gladly take layette kits, you can find the pattern here on our website!

AFCA provides unique volunteer experiences in order to build hope in communities infected and affected by AIDS. We hope that you find inspiration in Betsy’s story, and will join us in our mission at any level, from volunteering hours, sewing, traveling, climbing mountains, or donating.  No action is too small to bring hope to those that need it.
