Orphan Grain Train has distributed our first air-cargo shipment of requested food, water, wheelchairs and other items to Maui on Tuesday, August 22, 2023! Rev. Ralph Schmidt, OGT’s Director of Donor Advising and Chris Singer; Lutheran Church Charities, was in Maui working with Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Kahului, Maui and helped distribute OGT’s relief aid to those in need. The next shipment is being planned and the requested food & items are below.
We ask first for your prayers for the many families living in uncertainty. We also ask that if you are able to give toward this need to help with the cost of purchasing requested food and items along with shipment costs to Maui, would be very-much appreciated.
