Maui Fire Relief
On August 8th, devastating wildfires broke out on the island of Maui in the US state of Hawaii. The wildfires have accounted for at least 115 deaths and burned more than 2,000 acres in the hardest hit region of Lahaina, and more than 2,500 acres overall. This is the worst natural disaster in state history and the deadliest US wildfire in over a century.
Aid from the international community will be essential to supporting both immediate needs and long-term recovery as the residents of Maui look to rebuild. Lahaina vanished in a day, displacing 6.000+ individuals in need of water, food, shelter, and other basic needs due to these fires. CAF Canada is committed to supporting the community through this difficult time through the kindness and generosity of Canadian citizens.
As we look to build that response, we know that giving during times of natural disasters can be challenging and must be done with great care and diligence. CAF Canada is committed to supporting the vital relief efforts underway to recover from this devastating disaster.
As an organization committed to enabling cross-border charitable giving, CAF Canada stands ready to assist Canadian donors wanting to support the ongoing relief efforts. Please reach out to us if there is anything we can do to assist you: firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-362-2261.

CAF Canada set up The Maui Relief Fund to support projects with organizations providing immediate relief efforts and long-term support for the people affected by the August 8, 2023 wildfires on the island of Maui. CAF Canada is in conversations with various organizations supporting the relief efforts, with a current effort to finalize a project with the Maui Food Bank.
