IN THE NEWS

Recently featured in the Navajo Times, KSLTV, The San Juan Record, and FOX 13 Utah we have been collecting donations and essential supplies and directly delivering them to families of the Navajo Nation.

 

We have delivered to over 200 families in need and are still are going NavajoStrong!

In addition to the direct deliveries to families, our team has delivered water, food, hand sanitizer, and essential cleaning and hygiene items to the local to chapter houses of Kaibito, Kayenta, Leupp, Chilchinbito Second Mesa (Hopi Village) in Arizona. Navajo Mountain, Utah Navajo Health System, Inc., & Inscription House in Utah. Shiprock Police Department, Sonostee, Two Grey Hills, & Lavida Seventh Day Mission in New Mexico.  

 

The Navajo Nation is home to over 173,000 Native Americans who

operate under their own tribal authority.

As of May 19, 2020 it has surpassed

New York and New Jersey with the most infections per capita.

New Mexico Native Americans only make up 5% of the population but they make up 20% of COVID-positive patients.

The Navajo Nation is larger than West Virginia, but its population of about 300,000 has access to only about 20 intensive care unit beds.

Most of the burden of caring for the sick in their community falls on the fellow Navajo. Historically, the U.S. government hasn’t helped much, breaking dozens of promises with Native American tribes for centuries, dating far past Johnson v. M’Intosh in 1823.

An estimated 30% of people who live on the Navajo reservations do not have access to running water, and turn to outdoor pumps to get their supply. It makes it that much more difficult to fulfill the constant hand washing necessary during the

COVID-19 pandemic.

 NavajoStrong was created to aid the Navajo Nation during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. We strive to honor our ancestors and empower the Diné by working hard to help citizens who are affected by disease, poverty, and other health disparities on the Navajo Reservation.

  • Assist the vulnerable families and at-risk individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis by providing them with water, food, and enough essential supplies, such as hand sanitizer, soap, and cleaner to last least 2 weeks. 

  • Empower the people by providing them written education regarding the disease, resources for help, and knowledge about the disease. We aim to provide information in both written Navajo and English language. 

  • Because some people cannot drive to community distributions or travel on the weekend, we serve those who live in remote areas who cannot travel due to quarantine, lack of transportation, or other factors.
