The San Mateo Buddhist Temple Sangha offers its support and heartfelt wishes for Lahaina Hongwanji Temple Minister Rev. Ai Hironaka and his family.
The Lahaina Hongwanji Temple in Lahaina has burned down due to the disastrous fires that struck Maui on August 8.
The minister and his family managed to escape however with only 2 days worth of clothes. All their other belongings have burned along with the temple, so the Sangha leaders in Maui have started a GoFundMe campaign to help them get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
