GYO is at the forefront of promoting education and increasing health awareness in the Bronx and beyond.
On October 4, GYO Health Committee Chair Fatoumata Gassama led a health seminar on Physical Therapy. It was a successful event that enlightened back ache and how it could be managed and prevented.


In the past, GYO partnership with the Gambia Red Cross, which helps us in vetting of recipients and distribution of materials, we regularly ship equipment to under-resourced hospitals in The Gambia, a developing country in West Africa. Our shipments include wheelchairs, hospital beds, insecticide-treated mosquito nets, and other medical resources.
If you are interested in donating health equipment, please contact us. We will collect the equipment and distribute it to right people who need them most.

Hospital Beds shipped to the Gambia from Noth Carolina in 2007
