Five years after the 2018 Camp Fire killed 85 people and devastated the town of Paradise, California, another set of wildfires is raging in the United States. This time, the community affected is on the Hawaiian island of Maui, where a county official confirmed that 36 people had died as of Wednesday, while some 11,000 tourists were evacuated.
271 structures have been damaged or destroyed and dozens of people injured in the latest example of extreme weather run amok. Below, find five ways you can help to ease the suffering of those affected by the Maui wildfires.
Hawaii governor Josh Green’s office has directed donors toward this organization’s Maui Strong fund, which is being used to support communities affected by the wildfires on Maui.
This nonprofit is attempting to raise $100,000 to help with fire relief, asking site visitors: “Please consider donating whatever you can to help aid Lahaina Ohana’s with food and hygiene in this horrific time.”
This locally run group is collecting donations to assist those displaced or otherwise impacted by the fires, writing on Instagram: “All funds will be distributed as quickly as possible to vulnerable ‘Ohana in need, kupuna, persons with physical disabilities, renters and those who have no insurance or are underinsured.”
This nonprofit is working to provide meals for those affected by the wildfires, and is taking financial donations online and some donations of toiletries and other hygiene items in person.
This organisation has pledged to use any donations sent its way to provide grants to the nonprofits that are spearheading relief efforts, as well as giving directly to individuals in need.
