Kickstarter Campaign Combats Ebola
With The First-Ever Solar Power and Light ‘First Aid Kit’
November 7, 2014 – Extreme energy poverty serves as a critical issue facing the global community. In fact, over 90% of residents in Liberia and Sierra Leone, which serve as hotbeds for the Ebola virus, suffer from a lack of access to electricity. In an effort to defeat extreme energy poverty and aid the fight against Ebola, WakaWaka, an award winning impact driven social venture, has launched an innovative Kickstarter campaign to fund its WakaWaka Base, the world’s first solar power and light ‘first aid kit’. For every pledge made towards helping to develop this compact and portable solar power kit, WakaWaka will provide a solar light to Ebola health care workers, first responders and families in West Africa.
