Haiti is reeling from a devastating earthquake, which has left hundreds of thousands homeless and without basic energy services. Portable power options like solar lamps and phone chargers will have an immediate impact, providing not only light and power, but also creating safe communities and individual well-being. A Haitian entrepreneur who survived the earthquake stated, “In the first phase we need small solar lamps for people to use (in the tent camps) as well as solar street lights as a way to light the streets.” He continued, “In the second phase, we need job creation and the best way to help over the long term is therefore to send money to help buy from local solar manufacturers.”
