CEO Message: Our heartfelt aloha for Maui

Aug. 11, 2023

Aloha e ka ‘ohana o Ke Kula ‘o Kamehameha,

Our heartfelt aloha goes out to the island of Maui, to all its residents, and to every member of our extended Kamehameha Schools ʻohana affected by the devastating wildfires.

We grieve with all of you who are suffering during this crisis. Please know that you are not alone in facing this tragedy. We will come together to love and uplift one another, and to find comfort and healing. And we will continue to stand with you through the tough times ahead.

In the coming days, each of us will have opportunities to assist: by donating funds, food, and supplies; by lending a helping hand; by being a good friend; and by praying in earnest for those in need. I am confident that you will step forward with us in our collective efforts and on your own in your special way. Like Ke Ali‘i Pauahi, let us draw from our faith and find ways to express aloha and offer a compassionate response to those in need.

ʻEpeso 3:20 - A ʻo ka mea Nona ka mana e hana mai ai i nā mea a pau a kākou e noi aku ai, a e manaʻo iho ai, a nui loa aku hoʻi, ma ka mana e hoʻoikaika ana i loko o kākou. 

Ephesians 3:20 - Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 

In the darkness, aloha is our light of hope.

Ke Akua pū,
