The Iwalani Foundation was formed in 2007 to provide educational services to women about early breast cancer detection.
Another goal is to provide comfort to those in cancer treatment and others who are themselves touched by cancer, or know someone who is. Since we are all touched by cancer in some way, the Honouliuli Garden at Honouliuli in Ewa is a gift to the community.
For decades the property was neglected. It became a place to dump the trash, furniture, old cars, and other junk. It became known as a meeting place for those involved in criminal activities.
Working together, Iwalani garden/foundation, community groups, and the Honolulu Police Department Ewa branch have energetically worked together to create a safe garden retreat for the entire community.
