HMLlogoHauʻoli Mau Loa Foundation’s logo, the lehua maka noe blossom, has significant meaning because it creates a link to our founder, Helga Glaesel-Hollenback.  On her 75th birthday, community members from the island of Kauaʻi gave Helga the Hawaiian name of Kalehuamakanoe in recognition of her concern for Kauaʻi’s children.    This particular species (Lysimachia daphnoides), known as lehua maka noe, is only found on Kauaʻi in the uplands of Kōkeʻe, a place very special in the heart of Helga.
