KANEOHE, Hawaii — Relief Society sisters from the Kaneohe Hawaii Stake on the island of Oahu crocheted more than 100 special bandages for the Hansen's Disease (commonly known as leprosy) patients on the island of Molokai.

Kaneohe Stake President Scott Whiting expressed admiration for the sisters, representing all of the wards and branches of the stake, who spent hundreds of hours over several months to create the special bandages needed by residents of Kaulapapa, the historical Hawaii "leper colony."

May Au, former stake Relief Society president, made the presentation of these bandages to Kuulei Bell, a Church member and resident of Kaulapapa, who expressed sincere gratitude and promised to carry them to the patients on Molokai.
