The Maui Filipino Chamber of Commerce Foundation has set up a Bayanihan recovery fund to provide resources to support the immediate and long-term recovery needs of the people affected by the devastating Maui wildfires on Aug. 8. We are working with local, national and international partners to get an understanding of the quickly evolving priorities. We are committed to recovery as we rise together as a community. We have set up this fund to help provide those affected with basic needs, and to support long-term economic recovery and small business support, especially for our kababayan on Maui.
Were you affected by the recent Maui fires? We set-up this fund for you. But in order to avoid waste, we want to know your specific needs at the moment. We are also aware this will be a marathon so please help us reach out to others affected and invite them to sign-up via the Bayanihan Relief Fund - Signup Form here.
