UPDATE - Thank you to everyone who supported this incredible cause! Together, we've raised 31000PHP (~$827AUD). In other words, 32 households in the Philippines will now have sustainable access to solar light for 5 years. Salamat kaayo!
- Families in the Philippines are still struggling since the onslaught of the 2020 typhoons. This is on top of the devastating impact of the pandemic and the climate crisis.
- kids for the future x one million lights have identified communities in Catanduanes, Agusan, and Zambales that still have no access to electricity.
- Families that can afford it might use kerosene for light (40PHP or $1.08AUD). However, World Bank report that this can be as harmful as smoking 2 packets of cigarettes a day.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- 950PHP (~$25.67AUD) provides 1 household with solar lights for 5 years.
The Philippines is one of my homelands. I’ll be eternally grateful for any amount that you can contribute to this cause.
