Our yearly trip to Ghana helps address a global need for affordable healthcare
AFC Urgent Care Denver travels to Ghana each year to continue our philanthropic goals of promoting health and wellness to those who need it most. We donate 5% of all medication sales to finance our outreach missions
Each year, AFC Urgent Care Denver travels to Ghana to provide medical care, medications, and crucial preventive care to disadvantaged communities in the country. Our Ghana trip continues our mission to bring medical support, and more importantly hope, to rural communities where healthcare resources are extremely limited.
AFC Urgent Care Cherry Creek, Speer, Denver East, Denver Highlands, and Denver Leetsdale locations will allocate a 5% of our in-house medicine sales towards our annual cause. It is our way to continue providing medical services to our communities in Denver without asking for extra donations, while also giving the people of Ghana medical services they need to ensure a healthier, and longer life.
The urgent care teams from all of our AFC Urgent Care Denver centers are excited and passionate about our annual trip and ready to help those most in need!
