UOG relief efforts for Chuuk and Yap

UOG has begun its relief efforts for Chuuk and Yap to help in their recovery after extensive damages caused by the recent typhoon. It is gathering donations to distribute via the Ayuda Foundation. The supplies that have been most urgently requested are canned foods (high calorie, high protein is best) and tarps (for water reclamation, because the water tables have been compromised with salt water).

If you have questions or ideas for fundraising or donations, please direct them to Dr. Sarah Smith at She is a member of the WGS program and one of the faculty advisors to the Chuukese Student Organization. You may also contact Dave Okada at 735-2902 or e-mail him at Please share this information with as many people as you can. Thank you for your support. Together, we can make a difference! Saina Ma'ase'!
