MUMBAI: Waaree Energies Ltd. has dispatched over 1000 solar lanterns to be freely distributed to the earthquake affected families in Nepal. Once completely charged, these solar lanterns can work up to eight hours and they can also be used to charge mobile phones. This would provide the much needed respite to those who are stressed due to non-availability of power. Most of the earthquake affected areas are still under darkness, while power restoration work is underway.
During such natural calamities, being able to connect with the outside world is vital and these solar lanterns will help them do that. These units have already been dispatched to Nepal and its distribution would be managed by Waaree's local business associates.
Hitesh Doshi, Chairman and Managing Director at Waaree Energies Ltd. said, "My deepest sympathy is with the Nepalese people on their losses. These are truly critical times, hard to deal with. At this trying moment Waaree family stands strong with the earthquake survivors in Nepal. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them, while we do our bit to help them get through this tough time."
