Your donations make our work possible

Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa is able to do its work on behalf of the Kalaupapa community and family members only because of our generous donors. Like all nonprofit organizations, the ‘Ohana has struggled financially during the recent economic downturn. We realize that many of you have had to cut back on your personal budgets because of the economy so your donations mean that much more to us because we know they come from the heart.
Thanks to those of you whose names are listed on these pages, we have been able to reconnect dozens of families with their Kalaupapa ancestors. Because we were able to produce only a four-page newsletter last year, we have included the names of our donors from 2009 and 2010 in this edition. You are all very important to us…you are ‘ohana. Mahalo nui loa!

2009-2010 Donors
If we have mistakenly not included your name,
please accept our apologies and contact us.
