Mālama iā Maui

Sunset from Lāhainā before tragic wild fires swept the island.


We at CFHT are devastated by the tragic events that took place on Maui. Hawai'i is a small, close-knit state and a disaster on one island ripples through the community. CFHT staff have 'ohana, friends, and collaborators living on Maui who are personally affected by the fires that ravaged West Maui and Kula last week. The impacts of these fires will continue for years into the future.

We mourn the loss of so many in Lāhainā and express our solidarity with the Maui community.

We are deeply committed to helping Maui residents however we can. We encourage our astronomy community who are able to contribute to the much-needed aid through these sites. Anything helps.
