Disaster Relief efforts for the historic floods on Oahu and Kauai are on going, Darrell McCain Hawaii Pacific Disaster Relief Director has assessed the damage on Kauai and is setting up the response to help the survivors on Kauai. A team leader (White Hat) will arrive Friday April 27 and a experienced mudout team will hopefully arrive Sunday or Monday to start mudding out homes. We will come along side other organizations helping in the area of Hanalei. If you would like to help mudding out and debris removal on Kauai please contact Darrell McCain at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Mahalo for giving an offering to help survivors. Please give to your church or send directly to Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention, mark your check Kauai Disaster Relief.
Over 28 inches of rain in a 24 hour time has created a massive flooding disaster across the two islands.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention Churches have been coordinating and are responding to this crisis.
We have assessed homes in Aina Haina and Waimanalo and will help families as needed mudding out their homes and cleaning up debris.
We are setting up the logistics on Kauai to respond as soon as the all clear is given and it is safe to go in and help the people of Kauai in Jesus name.
We will coordinate a mud-out recovery and debris clean up response.
Please consider going as you are available to help.
Hawaii Pacific Disaster Relief trained volunteers and church members that are not SBDR trained are invited to go with us.
You will need to watch the mud-out training video on our website hpbaptist.net prior to coming and we will have an orientation time when you arrive.
Monetary donations are very helpful. Cash donations will allow us to send experienced team members to the affected area and the necessary tools and supplies to help survivors directly. Cash will allow us to purchase food and supplies to feed the volunteers. Items can be purchased locally to keep the economy moving.
