Share Aloha and Compassion for Ukraine by Making a Donation
As a way to share our aloha and compassion for the recent events happening in Ukraine we are requesting your support, if you are able to. We want to share our loving-kindness for all humanity with a warm embrace for the painful hearts cause by the Russian and Ukraine Conflict.
In 2018 when the lava flow affected the Puna area many residents didn’t have to worry about a hot meal as the chefs who volunteer with the World Central Kitchen (WCK) created meals to serve the people. Today there are two chefs that came to Hawaii that are now in Poland and Ukraine serving meals to anyone in need. The Vietnamese American Non-Governmental Organization (VANGO) is also matching up to $10,000 of donations that are donated to WCK.
