how does waka waka help?
Access to light and power is critical for survivors as well as emergency response teams who need light sources to begin dealing with the crisis.
WakaWaka's solar powered devices provide immediate assistance as well as long-term relief and enables survivors to see after dark and to charge their phones to connect with family members and loved ones elsewhere.
Following earlier relief efforts in Syria and also with the #SolarforSyria campaign, WakaWaka is working again with the International Rescue Committee. But this time also with Cordaid, Save the Children and the Red Cross. They ensure us that the WakaWakas are indeed provided to the families that need them the most. The WakaWaka Foundation works together with these world renowned organizations to retrieve the stories and images behind the provided aid. Please have a look at our Impact Map to track all provided WakaWakas worldwide.
