Response to earthquake in Nepal

Eight mil­lion people have been severely af­fected by the earth­quake in Nepal. There is wide­spread de­struc­tion and the death toll con­tin­ues to rise. Ac­cess to light and power is crit­ic­al for sur­viv­ors as well as the emer­gency re­sponse teams who need light sources after dark to deal with the crisis. In part­ner­ship with the Sair­am Found­a­tion, WakaWaka Lights have been dis­trib­uted to sur­viv­ors of the earth­quake. The WakaWa­kas provide im­me­di­ate as­sist­ance as well as long-term re­lief by en­abling these fam­il­ies to see after dark and to charge their phones to con­nect with fam­ily and loved ones.
