YOUR GIFT OF A SOLAR LAMP
Be a beacon of light this Christmas
A light in the darkness that is safe to use and free to run for families in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
Night-time comes early in DRC, where the sun sets around 6pm every evening.
Most family homes in DRC have no electricity and use kerosene lamps that emit dangerous fumes, are expensive, dirty and a huge fire hazard.
A fully-charged solar lamp provides six hours of light. So families can easily cook and care for children in the evening, and children like Maria Namongo from north east Uganda, can do her homework
