We’re delighted to report that we’ve sent another consignment of emergency radio-lights to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.  Our local partner, the respected, International Office of Migration has distributed them mainly in and around Tacloban, one of the worst-hit areas.

There’s a vibrant network of community radio stations that are broadcasting all sorts of practical information on seasonal diseases and other health matters, rehabilitating disaster affected communities, violence against women, child care and human trafficking.

Although Typhoon Haiyan struck nearly a year ago, water and electricity have yet to be restored in many areas.  Filipinos really appreciate that the solar and wind-up Polaris not only provides information on demand, but also help people to see at night.  The built-in LED light is useful for undertaking tasks as well as walking.
