To usher the 2024 New Year with auspicious blessings to the twenty one 2023 Maui Wildfires victims , Hawaii Fo Guang Shan Venerable Abbess YiHung and 3 of Hawaii BLIA members revisited Lahaina on January 16, Tuesday at 2 pm.
Since August 9, 2023, the 260 BLIA organizations globally have been fundraising for this natural disaster. Over $240,000 were collected over the six months and relief funds were distributed to over 11 Maui community organizations as well as 50 Lahaina friends.
These Maui residents had lived and worked for many generations here;and presently, their homes and businesses have completely diminished. They start a new chapter of their lives with hope , faith, and optimism.
Our humble gifts of spiritual prayers, New Year blessings, our New Year red envelopes, and our presence bring comfort and reassurance to them. Maui is still unforgotten and is a member of the Hawaii Aloha Ohana community! We are here for you and continue to support Maui with the utmost of our endeavors.
Maui Stay Strong! Maui No Kai Oi … Maui Da Best!
