Be the reason someone smiles this Christmas
After a disaster, darkness can be a dangerous and persistent challenge.
That’s why all of our aid packages contain a set of solar lights – enabling families to stay safe and spend time together after night falls.
This Christmas, you can honour someone special in your life, and pay it forward by giving the gift of light for $35.
Make the World of Difference
For many of us, our inflatable solar lights would be the perfect solution for when the power goes out.
But, for Catherine, whose home in Dominica was destroyed by Hurricane Maria, it is her sole means of keeping her family safe after dark.
The light is bright and lovely. It allows me to cook, to safely collect water and stay up after dark to get my life back to normal.
