Gusūyō, chū wuganabira.
Our hearts are heavy as details surrounding the situation on Maui continue to emerge. This tragedy hits us hard, as Maui is one of the islands that Ukwanshin Kabudan has a strong connection to through their Okinawan cultural associations’ various activities. In case you are wanting to donate and unsure where to turn, here is a short list of organizations you might want to consider.
- Volunteer Time or Donate Fund to Hawaii Red Cross:
- Donate to Hawaii Community Foundation’s Maui Strong fund:
- Donate to AUW’s Maui fire relief fund:
- Kākoʻi Maui – every dollar matched up to $1.5 million
Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement
