Road Trip to Navajo Nation

A Meaningful Summer Adventure

Photo courtesy of Dino Reichmuth, UnsplashThe best part of summer are the road trips... open roads and lots of adventure! FFCC is preparing to embark on a very special road trip and there is still room if you would like to JOIN US.

On Monday morning, June 29th, FFCC will head east on the interstate 8 and travel 545 miles to Winslow, Arizona. Our cargo will be much needed food, water, PPE, medication, tents, tools, diapers, hygiene items and toys and books for the children of Navajo Nation. COVID-19 continues to rage on the reservation with one of the highest infection rates in the country. Our contact from the Navajo Nation will travel two hours from the reservation town of Chinli to meet us in Winslow. There we will deliver our gifts which will be distributed back on the reservation to those in great need. Read more

 
OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED

                         A Plague & A Pandemic                                 Locust Swarms & COVID-19     

Last year an outbreak of locusts raged across Eastern Africa destroying crops and pastures. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), these locust swarms have left 20 million people with acute food insecurity. There is concern says the World Bank that this locust population will grow to be 400 times larger than last year and it is due to hit this summer during the harvest season. The result of this outbreak will cause an even greater food shortage in this part of the world.

Combine this critical food shortage and a deadly virus, and in a country like Tanzania with only one testing lab and limited medical resources, you understand FFCC's sense of urgency to help. Read more
