LIHUE — Disaster recovery on Kauai is making progress with the help of good Samaritans.
Samaritan’s Purse, a North Carolina-based Christian relief organization, on Wednesday landed at Lihue Airport with supplies and disaster specialists on the organization’s DC-8 cargo plane that departed from Greensboro.
"Thank you @SamaritansPurse and @FranklinGraham for your tremendous generosity in supplying donations, supplies, equipment and support for ongoing recovery efforts on #Kauai. Over the weekend, dozens of Samaritan’s Purse volunteers from Kauai and several other states unloaded and delivered 70 tons of donations to help those affected by the floods with the rebuilding effort. Although the long road to recovery has just begun, we’re continuing to see Aloha in action through people coming together to help those in need.
