WakaWaka launches Solar for Syria

WakaWaka has partnered with the International Rescue Committee and Stichting Vluchteling (Dutch Refugee Organization) to provide crisis aid to fleeing Syrian citizens. Over 25000 WakaWaka Powers have now been provided. This enables an estimated 100000 refugees to safely see, study, move about, cook, read and gather after darkness, without the risk of tent fires due to kerosene use. The solar-powered WakaWakas also allow the refugees to charge their phones and connect with other family members and loved ones caught in the horrors of the civil war. But further support is needed. There are millions of Syrian refugees inside the country itself and millions crossing the borders with Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Lebanon. That is why, on November 25 we will launch Solar for Syria, a large-scale online ‘Buy One, Give One’ campaign. Where a global audience will be able to purchase their own solar powered gear, while for every item sold, one identical product will be provided to Syrian refugees.
