The Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona has the highest rate of both infection and death from Coronavirus in the Nation

The coronavirus pandemic has attacked Arizona’s Navajo Nation.  The Nation is not equipped to battle this epidemic alone.  When our Navajo friends tearfully relayed their first hand accounts of the suffering, a few of us offered the situation to God in prayer.  Within days we found ourselves hard at work, the community response was overwhelming, and twelve days later the first convoy of trucks and trailers delivered needed supplies to three of Arizona’s Navajo communities.  The community outreach called Helping Hands for the Navajo People continues collecting supplies and delivering them to remote communities.  
We continue to need your help.  Any money donated will purchase items of greatest need and we are collecting non-perishable canned goods and dry food, paper products, masks, gloves, PPE, diapers, baby formula and wipes.  Products that support health care workers, the young, and the elderly are of greatest need.

Need and Compassion

Our biggest cities receive much of the national attention while our Arizona neighbors, the Navajo people suffer mostly in silence.  Our goal was to not let the lack of a media spotlight be mistaken for a lack of love and understanding.  Arizonans responded and the Navajo Nation has expressed their gratitude. But unfortunately, the Navajo Nation’s inspection spike continues even as most of the country begins to recover. Therefore, our efforts to help must continue.  It took 12 days for our first convoy of help to arrive and our second and third deliveries followed soon after.  Can you help us continue this important work?

100% Pass-Through

The Helping Hands for the Navajo Nation has no employees, only volunteers. 100% of everything donated goes directly to the people. We are approved by President Nez, and are working directly with the community on the ground at the reservation.  All supplies and funds are distributed directly into the hands of citizens of the Navajo Nation in the most rural areas of the Nation,. It is amazing to see love and support in action.
