A Message from our President

“I am so proud to be a part of Ka ‘Ohana O Kalaupapa. This organization is wonderful – it’s not just patients, but it’s family members and people who have supported us for so many years. We are one ‘ohana, working together to make life better for the patients and to preserve the history so people in the future will remember those who have passed on. We have to remember the history of all of us who were sent here, we have to remember the families who we had to leave and the families who might not even know about us. I hope this organization grows and becomes even stronger, and that more people learn about their family members at Kalaupapa.”
