To address this urgent need, the nonprofit Pacific Birth Collective has been delivering essentials via jet ski and boat, and Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition of Hawaii has dispatched a mobile clinic van offering free services.
Although these organizations are receiving support now, they say the recovery effort will take years and they’ll continue to need the world’s help.
In response to the recent devastating wildfires in Maui, some significant help is coming in from Chicago.
Yesterday, the Northern Illinois Food Bank sent out 41 pallets of dry goods in partnership with ALDI and Feeding America.

In 2021, Sebastien Roure found a class ring at a World War II battlefield in France, and later discovered it belonged to U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Robert Kuroda, a Medal of Honor recipient who was killed in action in 1944.
Roure reached out to Kuroda's family, who traveled to France to reclaim the ring and now proudly display it alongside Kuroda’s Medal of Honor at their family business in Hawaii.
This week, the Roure family visited the Kurodas in Hawaii, getting to see the ring again, meeting the family and getting a tour of the island as thanks for returning an important part of their family’s history.
