Light Up Aqaba

Working with Kopernik, we at Human Relief Foundation is providing the Aqaba refugee camp with light, so those living in hardship can benefit from security, health, education and an improved quality of life.

Light Up Aqaba with us to provide the Aqaba refugee camp with light, so those living in hardship can benefit from security, health, education and an improved quality of life.

EASING BURDENS

To refugees living in camps, the importance of light and electricity goes well beyond comfort – it stands for security, health, education and an improved quality of life.

Yet nights are often dark in refugee camps around the world, which provide homes to millions of displaced individuals seeking shelter in the wake of natural catastrophes or wars.

Working with our partners Kopernik, we at Human Relief Foundation will provide Aqaba refugee camp in Jordan with solar powered lamps.

Finding a reliable, flexible and affordable source of electricity for refugees can have dramatic implications on their living situation.

BRIGHTEN THE CAMP – BRIGHTEN LIVES

Renewable energy technologies like the solar powered lamps can transform sunlight, wind, or water - into electricity. This can provide many benefits to people in the camp.

EDUCATION

Children will have access to adequate lighting at night so they can do their homework (thus resulting in a lower drop-out rate at the local school). Education will be vastly improved and children will benefit.

LIVELIHOODS

Small business owners can use the light to support their activities after sunrise and continue making a living for their families.

The lamps can also provide an income for many households. Using the lamp, beneficiaries can earn a small yet sustainable income by charging others to charge their mobile phones easily.

SECURITY

Those who travel internally within the camp will be and feel more, safe. They will be able to use the portable lamps to see in the dark and this will also help prevent violence, particularly against women.
