Mauli Ola Foundation
Mission Statement: Dedicated to providing hope and confidence to individuals living with genetic diseases. Harnessing the healing powers of the ocean, we introduce surfing and ocean-based activities as natural therapies. We are honored to share our knowledge of the ocean, family values and community — May the wave heal us all.
MOF Surf Experience Days: Mauli Ola takes kids with CF surfing to experience what natural therapies can do for their lungs. The saline content in the ocean air and water breaks down the congestion in their lungs. Exercise helps to strengthen their lungs and expel mucous. With natural salt water treatments, their hospital visits are significantly reduced and they are exposed to the outdoors leading to healthier and more fulfilling lives that all kids should experience.
