Urgent Appeal: Radios for Pakistan



Lifeline Energy has wind-up and solar-powered radios and wind-up flashlights for distribution. When you’ve lost everything, the importance of reliable information and light can be critical to survival

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The devastating floods that hit Pakistan – the nation’s worst ever natural disaster - have affected an estimated 20 million people, leaving an unknown number of people dead. By donating a Lifeline radio or a NOOR flashlight, you can help provide displaced populations with on-going access to vital information and a light source.

How will this project solve this problem?

Lifeline Energy has wind-up and solar-powered radios and a rugged wind-up, bright LED flashlight with a siren, cell phone charging port and a FM radio, for immediate distribution. The radios were designed to operate in harsh conditions and climates.

Potential Long Term Impact

The radios could help inform millions of displaced people – including 3.5 million children - about the risks of disease, how to prevent sickness and where to obtain assistance. The light will provide assistance in walking, eating, and security.
