You can change a life

Malik (pictured right) attended Camp Aloha after the death of his grandmother and the death of his best friend. That experience changed his life and helped him realize he was not alone in his grief. In 2016 he returned to camp as a counselor in order to give to other kids what had been given to him: the compassion of an open heart and a listening ear. Watch his story here.

You can change a life too!
