This simple solar lamp will brighten a Cambodian child’s world. They can use it to see homework and walk safely to the toilet in the dark and they won’t have to rely on dangerous fires to see at night.
How this gift helps
Without electricity in their homes, Lika and her friends struggled to study after dark. Many children have had their homes damaged or destroyed by accidental fires, caused by using dangerous kerosene lamps or fire as a source of light. Thanks to Gifts for Good donors, Lika and her friends can now look forward to reading books, and studying by the light of their new lamps. “Before receiving this lamp, I used a torch to read books. But the torch batteries would only last two nights. I am happy to receive my solar lamp and I will do my best to come first in class,” Lika joyfully told us. “Thank you so much for donating the solar lamp.”
