SEE THE FULL STORY

Our goal
To provide immediate COVID-19 relief to the Navajo Nation (Dine) and prevent the spread of the virus
The Challenge

The Navajo Nation has the third-highest rate of COVID-19 infection in the US and is vulnerable.

The Navajo have been vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic due to health disparities, lack of COVID-19 education, and a scarcity of potable water for hand-washing. There is an imminent threat of starvation due to the lock down and limited food sources on the reservation. There is a shortage of hospital staff and medical supplies, and the Navajo, like other Native Nations in the U.S., have to apply for assistance from the CDC and then wait in line (unlike States).

Our Solution

Emergency supplies must be delivered immediately and in a safe manner to prevent virus transmission.

Funds from this campaign will be used to purchase and distribute emergency supplies (COVID-19 educational materials, personal protective equipment, food, water, vitamins, baby and personal hygiene supplies, etc.) These will be assembled as care packages and delivered to the Navajo in Shiprock, New Mexico, and surrounding areas by local Native grassroots organizations. The care packages will be delivered by volunteers equipped (wearing masks) so as to prevent further spread of the disease.

Your Impact

Your donation will help to protect and sustain a vulnerable population during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your donation will provide for the purchase and delivery of vital supplies needed to protect and sustain Navajo families (esp. the disabled and home bound) and volunteers assisting them during the COVID-19 outbreak. Personal protective equipment (e.g. masks, gloves), sanitizers and COVID-19 educational materials, delivered in a safe manner, will help prevent the spread of the virus. Other supplies will provide for basic needs and promote overall health and well-being.

$5,000 Minimum Funding Goal
  • 40%-Other emergency supplies

  • 40%-100 N95 masks

  • 10%-Delivery of care packages

  • 10%-Printing educational materials

$5,000 Campaign Booster Funding

This displays the maximum incremental additional funding the campaign could receive (Maximum Funding Amount (MFA) less Minimum Funding Goal)). For example, if the MFA is $100,000 and the MFG $10,000, it would show the difference of $90,000 here.

  • 40%-Other emergency supplies

  • 40%-100 N95 masks

  • 10%-Delivery of care packages

  • 10%-Printing educational materials
