Project Embrace Donates $35K In Medical Equipment To Navajo Nation
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Navajo Nation has been hit hard during the pandemic, and the need for medical equipment hasn’t slowed.
A nonprofit that was started by a college student is working to help those people in need, and the group has just made its largest donation yet.
Project Embrace started in a University of Utah dorm room. This past weekend, it donated $35,000 worth of medical equipment like walkers, wheelchairs, canes and crutches to those in need in the Navajo Nation.
“We saw that there is a huge demand for this kind of stuff,” said Mohan Sudabattula, who started the nonprofit. “… Everyone and anyone can make a difference in health care if they try.”
The group has grown immensely in three years. Members make, on average, three to four trips to the Navajo reservation each year, where the most vulnerable populations are having to isolate at home and are unable to get the equipment they need.
“Hopefully, our small gesture can establish some sense of community and normalcy during a difficult time,” Sudabattula said.
Project Embrace plans to return to the Navajo Nation in spring 2021.
