‘With your help, we are living a good life – we are very happy’
Ritta and Dorica both lost their homes when floods destroyed their village in Chickwawa, Malawi. They lost their food, their farming tools and all of their blankets – everything but the clothes they were wearing.
Thankfully, we were able to provide them and their neighbors with ShelterBoxes filled with all of the essentials to replace what they’d lost, from a sturdy, family-sized tent to kitchen utensils and blankets.
One of the items they found particularly useful was the LuminAID solar light, which can last for up to 16 hours on one charge. The inflatable design means that it is waterproof, can float and is light enough for even a small child to carry.
In this video, we see the villagers receiving their LuminAIDs and learn how something as simple as a solar light makes such a difference to the lives of people like Ritta and Dorica:
