The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the Navajo Nation especially hard and the Elders we serve are severely high risk due to the prevalence of diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease among the Elderly Navajo. Many of the Elder's care takers and family members have tested positive for the virus.

In order to serve the Elders, Adopt-A-Native-Elder has been sending food certificates to Elders that allow them to purchase the healthy and fresh foods that their aging bodies require and the daily essentials that they need to maintain proper hygiene. But we have not yet met the needs of the 720 Elders that we support. In order to meet those needs and ensure that every Elder in the program is receiving enough monthly aid to maintain their health we need to continue to increase food certificate donations.

100% of all general donations made during the pandemic will be sent to the reservation as food certificates in an Elder's name.

We have worked with Basha's grocery stores on the reservation to ensure that younger and lower risk family members can shop for their Elders with the food certificates so that the Elders can stay safely isolated at home. We have also worked to ensure that Basha's offers Elder-only shopping hours for Elders without healthy family members to shop for them.

As we continue to work to serve the Elders we ask for your donations and your prayers for their health and safety. There are other ways that you can help support the Elders. Please share our social media posts and tell your friends and family members about the pandemic's effect on our Elders. Thank you for your kindness, love, and support.
