Care for Indigenous Elders
The Coronavirus has severely affected Native Americans in the western US. Already facing severe health disparities prior to the pandemic, the Covid-19 promises to widen the gap.
Native American elders, vital keepers of their culture, deserve help now more than ever. Afya is collaborating with local organizations to launch a multi-state and multi-sector response to reach elders. Each partner organization will receive a range of requested and customized health and medical supplies and critical PPE to protect against COVID-19.
Our partner organizations are:
- Adopt a Native Elder
- CORE Response
- Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health
- Federally Qualified Health Centers across Navajo Nation
Your donation will enable Afya to provide vital PPE such as masks, gloves, and gowns for community workers serving elders and critical medical supplies such as walkers and canes that elders need.
