The grassroots Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund, which has raised over $5.6 million since March, has now partnered with Air Serv International to bring aid to Navajo rural communities by air.
“I’ve never been a part of something like this,” said Cassandra Begay, NHFRF communications director. “I never would have thought that I would be coordinating a humanitarian air program for my Nation. It kind of feels like, yeah, I’m fighting COVID with airplanes!”
Air Serv, a nonprofit charity, is a humanitarian organization dedicated to the movement of cargo and personnel by air. Air Serv operates overseas in conflict areas or places without infrastructure, where it’s unsafe or not possible to transport cargo by ground.
