Update April 25, 2020

Thank you to all who have supported our work at Bluff Area Mutual Aid! Since we started assisting with aid on March 17th, BAMA has been able to provide support to 500 households and nearly 2,500 people across Bluff, the sevens Utah chapters of the Navajo Nation, and the White Mesa areas. We’re so grateful for your continued support to these communities.

As is the case for so many, this pandemic has presented many challenges to ourselves and our neighbors in remote areas. We have received an unprecedented number of requests and intend to fulfill them all. To best provide aid in our limited capacity, BAMA will be focusing on fulfilling all of the requests that we have received to date and then shifting our focus to directly support bulk supply orders to local partners. This means that we will be closing down our box supply system, and instead working with the Utah Navajo Health System, Navajo Nation chapter officials, and the Ute Mountain Ute Nation to coordinate delivery.

This is the safest course of action we can take both for our volunteer team and the communities we seek to assist. We will continue to fundraise and use any available funds to coordinate and order food and supplies, but will be changing our model of distribution to respect the Navajo Nation’s ordinances on travel and delivery. Thank you for understanding the need for this shift and for supporting our work. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to bluffareamutualaid@gmail.com
