Former New Mexico Governor Richardson Launches Effort To Get Medical Supplies For Navajo Nation


A philanthropic effort aimed at boosting access to scarce medical and protective equipment supplies on the Navajo Nation is being organized by former Democratic New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.

The coronavirus has swept with ferocity through the Navajo Nation. Infections have surpassed 550 with 22 deaths as of Thursday.

Richardson says his enduring sense of gratitude and friendship with the Navajo people prompted his effort to provide seed money and launch the humanitarian effort in cooperation with Molina Healthcare and New Mexico Children’s Foundation.
