Philippines Rotary and Grid Earth Team Up with WakaWaka
The devastation left by Typhoon Haiyan is a humanitarian catastrophe. Millions in the Philippines are without electricity.
With your help we are delivering solar-powered WakaWakas on the ground - as many as we can, as soon as possible. Every purchase of a WakaWaka Solar Lamp or WakaWaka Power will result in a family receiving a WakaWaka of their own.
Help us mobilize more than 1.2 million Rotary members, friends and the community as a whole to provide assistance through WakaWaka donations that provide immediate benefits such as safe light for the victims struggling through the aftermath of this devastating storm by taking a moment to review the WakaWaka Solar Lamp and WakaWaka Power products and purchase one or more for your family and friends.
'No electricity. No food. No water. Houses and buildings leveled. Bodies scattered on the streets. Hospitals overrun with patients. Medical supplies running out.' This is how CNN described the situation in Tacloban, Leyte province.
The Rotary Club of San Pedro South, in coordination with the Grid Earth Project and WakaWaka, have come together to bring about significant relief for families in the Philippines suffering from the recent Typhoon. There are many organizations that are supplying aid in the form of food, water and medical supplies.
We have chosen to focus our efforts on the much needed delivery of sustainable, cost effective solar products such as lighting. One of the greatest needs is for a safe source of light which will not be restored in many regions for months or possibly years to come.
WakaWaka's tested and proven solar-powered devices provide immediate assistance and hope. Eight hours of sunlight will provide in excess 16 – 40 hours of continuous light for a family living in darkness, enabling the survivors to see after dark in these devastated and often dangerous areas. In addition, emergency response teams need WakaWakas to even begin dealing with the crisis.
Purchase yours today to help support this effort through The Rotary Club of San Pedro South.
Buy One, Give One
WakaWakas are high-tech, low-cost, durable solar powered lamps and chargers that are indispensable tools both in the developing world and in developed markets.
For each WakaWaka you purchase, one WakaWaka will be donated for distribution through The Rotary Club of San Pedro South to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.
