Air Serv International Facilitates
Supply Delivery into the Navajo
Nation and Hopi Reservation

ithin a week
of receiving
US$70,000 from
from the ISTAT
Foundation
COVID-19 Relief Grant, Air Serv
International mobilized in Phoenix,
Arizona, to facilitate the movement
of COVID-19 relief supplies into the
Navajo Nation and Hopi Reservation.
Following a week of on-site setup and
procurement of items for delivery,
the first flight of the airlift program
departed Deer Valley Airport on 8 July.
As of 21 July, the program has delivered
15,266 pounds of goods to seven
different distribution centers.

many hours it may take to source food
and other basic necessities.
Air Serv International, funded by
the ISTAT Foundation's grant, has

partnered with the Navajo and Hopi
Families Relief Fund to directly reach
remote and isolated communities in
need of everything ranging from PPE
and sanitizer to daily supplies, using
Cessna Caravans. In a time and place
where needs are immediate, the
planes can deliver relief far faster than
ground transport. The desert climate
and contaminated ground water on
the reservation have necessitated the
quick delivery of potable water for not
only drinking and cooking, but also
washing, a critical component in the
fight against COVID-19. In addition,
the planes deliver items such as foot

water coolers with pour spouts for use
as hand-washing stations; tents and
