Solar Light in Puerto Rico’s Darkness

Solar Light in Puerto Rico’s Darkness

Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico with its torrential downpours and whipping winds. Power was knocked out across Puerto Rico and many did not know where to begin with recovery. Operation Blessing arrived with solar lights to help bring some light to the darkness, and are working to help bring safe drinking water back to the island. As children held their solar light, they could finally see something capable of piercing the darkness. More relief is on the way to help these disaster victims.

      The lights are not for sale 🙂 Sorry. We use them only in our humanitarian efforts in disasters and in other impoverished areas without electricity.

        I would love to buy them for my dad. I just saw someone from your organization speaking with the Mayor of San Juan and I heard her say about the solar lights. I really would love my dad how lives in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico up in the mountains its not an easy ride. Power goes out just for blinking quickly if there is anyway I can buy them and bring to him. I am going in November to see what else I can do for him.

        Were these lights designed specifically for relief agencies and NGOs? Is there any commercially available counterpart? I am refreshing my own hurricane gear supply and am finding it hard to find reliable, powerful, portable solar lights.

    Thank you Operation Blessing for all your are doing, I think people in the above threads wanted to know where they can buy them and send to their families but Patti answered the question.
