On Monday, dozens of nurses answered the call from the AFYA Foundation to pack up urgent medical supply kits for the medical personnel in Puerto Rico. We spent the day packing up supplies.

On Tuesday evening, these same kits were delivered and picked up by physicians in Clinica Bantiox, PR. Watch the video and see Dr. Carlo's response below.
"I feel the need to put into words a little of this epic day. First and foremost thank you to all of you, Danielle, Lee and all the nurses who so lovingly put together the awesome crates we received. They are almost all on the way to remote places in PR. The doctors picking up supplies were squealing like children while picking up their much needed materials. I feel we are making a difference, making noise. I hope we make enough noise so that help comes from within and you guys can soon move on to help others in need. In the meantime, thank you from the bottom of my heart."
