An island dream has turned into a nightmare scenario. Unprecedented wildfires have killed at least 106 people on the Hawaiian island of Maui, and the blazes have scorched large portions of the island. Most of the fires have not yet been contained.

Because of Hawaii's isolated geography, aid and supplies are limited and must be brought in from elsewhere. The items are needed now to begin making a difference in the lives of families who have lost everything.

TBM is working through longstanding partners to send in aid, including food, diapers and other supplies. Our connections empower TBM to minister in ways others cannot at this point.

“The church has been addressing immediate needs by providing generators, water, fuel and other necessities,” said Rand Jenkins, TBM Senior Director of Advancement. “Now they are shifting their focus, with church members now housing those who lost their homes. One family is hosting 28 additional people. Think what that does to your water, electricity, food and other bills.”

The commitment to follow their faith has meant an increased strain on churches and believers across Maui. 

You can deliver help, hope and healing to Hawaiians in the midst of this extremely difficult situation. Donate financially today to make a difference during people's most difficult days.

“What we need now is funds,” Pastor Rocky Komatsu said. “Yesterday I became nervous about having to penny-pinch because items are so expensive and the need is so great.”

Please be in prayer for the people on Maui as well as those who are responding to needs.
