Aloha for Maui
By Catherine Cluett Pactol | Reporter
Molokai ‘ohana gathered last week to create friendship bracelets to share aloha with Maui keiki affected by the fires. The bracelets were sent to Maui already, and participants hope they will bring smiles to the faces of their recipients.
On Friday, the community took part in a statewide pule vigil for those who lost their lives in the Maui fires, for those who grieve them, and for rain, healing and the cleansing of the land. The Molokai events of the Kipuni Aloha no Maui (Embrace Beloved Maui) vigil were led by kumu Miki’ala Pescaia, and held at sunrise, noon and sunset.
Molokai residents are also organizing food donations for displaced Maui families.
