Disaster survivors to discuss experiences
KAHULUI - Three victims of the March 11 Japan disasters will discuss their experiences from 1 to 3 p.m. July 23 at the Kahului Hongwanji Mission.
The victims are on Maui through The Aloha Initiative, a project in which Japanese visitors are being brought to Maui and Oahu for a respite from the tragedies.
There will be light refreshments at the free presentation.
Also, The Aloha Initiative is no longer accepting clothing donations because it has been overwhelmed by generous community contributions.
For more information, call 280-1299 or go online to www.alohainitiative.com.
