Irish Fundraising Supports Clean Water For Native Americans During Pandemic

DUBLIN

More than 170 years ago, the Choctaw Nation sent $170 to starving Irish families during the potato famine. Now hundreds of Irish people are repaying that old kindness, giving to a charity drive for two tribes suffering in the COVID-19 pandemic. As of Tuesday, the fundraiser has raised more than $1.8 million to help supply clean water, food and health supplies to people in the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Reservation.
