“It’s important for our community to be vaccinated,” said Melen Agcolicol, president of Binhi at Ani. “Our community needs to be knowledgeable, pay attention to the science and not be misinformed. That way our elderly–our Nana’s and Tata’s–will be safe and we will be able to gather for events in the near future.”
Binhi at Ani, which literally means seed and harvest, is a Hawaiʻi 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, established in 1985. Its purpose is to provide for scholarships, promote mutual respect and understanding among peoples of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, promote good citizenship and cultural awareness and promote the general welfare.
