Eight million people have been severely affected by the earthquake in Nepal. There is widespread destruction and the death toll continues to rise. Access to light and power is critical for survivors as well as the emergency response teams who need light sources after dark to deal with the crisis. In collaboration with UNFPA, WakaWakas have been distributed to survivors of the earthquake. These WakaWakas have been generously donated by the listeners of WAMC Northeast Public Radio. The WakaWakas provide immediate assistance as well as long-term relief by enabling these families to see after dark and to charge their phones to connect with family and loved ones.
