Because of a lack of electricity, many people in Haiti rely on dangerous kerosene lamps for light. Not only are kerosene lamps a fire hazard, but chronic exposure to the vapours they emit can cause respiratory, skin, and lung issues. The lights we are currently purchasing are Nokero N233 Solar lights and cost around $30 CAD, delivered. These will make a huge difference in the lives of the people who receive them.
