It is reported that at least 53 people has died in the Maui Wildfires at Lahaina. Remember the key word, “reported”. This could mean hundreds or even thousands of people died from the fires. Now, what are we doing to help it? Nothing.
No media coverage nor organizations are covering the truth on the death poll at all, and are not helping enough, as informed by Allie, a tiktoker in Maui coming out with the reality and seriousness of the situation.
It was also informed that the main source of help were the citizens themselves. They have been going to Lahaina and dropping off supplies to help the people, but has been hard due to the severeness of the fires.
So how can we help them? Let’s start by contacting local organizations. No matter how small they are, a little impact is better than none. As humans we have the power to change the world. To get to that, we need to take small steps. Whether it is contacting local human rights services or donating, together we can make an effort to let the families and children of Maui be in peace, and preserve their community.
