Far East Navajo COVID-19 Response Fund

In coordination with the Far Eastern Navajo chapters the Torreon Community Alliance request your support to help these communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Because of distance from sophisticated medical facilities, governmental centers and food markets,  The Far Eastern Navajo communities will be susceptible to significant socioeconomic-medical impacts caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The funds would purchase critical sanitation supplies/ food supplies for the most needy of the communities. This project is meant to immediately  supplement and support the local Navajo Governmental Chapters response and mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This project will seek to comply local Navajo community partner input, within reason.  All federal, state and tribal laws will be complied with in order to keep all volunteers safe. TCA recognizes and respects the multi-jurisdiction issues in the Far Eastern Checkerboard Navajo communities and will aspire to work in harmony with as many partners, tribal and non-tribal, as the funding and safety issues will allow.

The Far East Navajo Communities consist of, but are not limited to, Counselors, Ojo Encino, Torreon/Starlake, Pueblo Pintado, Whitehorse Lake, Baca/Prewitt, Casamero Lake  and Littlewater.

Due to the size and time constraints of the impact COVID-19 is having, the far eastern Navajo communities felt the need to mobilize as many resources to shorten logistic chains of support.
