What’s Happening in Kauai

Due to the recent flooding, children, women, and men are reporting medical problems, including skin rashes from coming into contact with dirty water.

The rain is subsiding on flood-devastated Kauai, but recovery efforts continue and officials warn it could take weeks just to reopen major roadways. Meanwhile, on Oahu, the city is opening disaster recovery centers for flood victims.

Here are some news reports you can watch:

Aloha!

The beautiful garden island of Kauai needs your rubber boots! We must get boots on every person size 0 to big strapping men to guard against the infectious water many are wadding in for hours at a time. All the stores are out of stock on island and we need your help.

We must get boots on every person in all affected flood zones including small children, volunteers, and workmen. Our greatest concern currently is an infection. We must get boots on every single person in order to avoid this. We are in desperate need of waders, heavy duty waterproof rubber boots, and children's rubber boots. The ground in various areas is saturated and rubber boots should be worn by every person including young children. There is still standing water in many areas both in the south and north parts of the island. The volunteers and residents in these areas are at high risk.

If anyone can purchase online and have boots of all sizes toddler to large men shipped to:

Boot Drive
C/O Rusko Electric.

Get in touch now

Our project manager, Tracy Medeiros lives in Kauai. When she expressed the issues they are having there due to the flooding, we, of course, wanted to help! Initially, we wanted to do a boot drive, but the cost of mailing boots was not possible. So, we decided to instead provide faster and easier ways for you to help. If you have questions about how you can help, please use the links above. That is what they need. If you have other questions, please click the link and let us know!
