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 U.S. 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.
Two hundred and seventy-one 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 Community Foundation
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.
New Life Kahuku Inc.
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.”
