"Millions of children can't draw, write, or read after sunset, limiting their horizons and possibly their futures," said Marianne Barner, head of IKEA Social Initiative. "We hope our lamps are a small but important contribution to improving the lives of children in developing countries."
The first donation of SUNNAN lamps received by UNICEF recently arrived in Pakistan. UNICEF deployed the donation to the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) where unrest had led to substantial internal displacement leaving hundreds of thousands living in IDP camps and temporary shelters; all in need of humanitarian assistance. The second lot of SUNNAN lamps is on the way to Pakistan and is destined to support communities in Balochistan living without electricity. UNICEF is also currently identifying the needs of communities in India and China for future donations. Additionally, shipments have been sent to Save the Children for donations to children in the cotton districts in Maharashtra, India.To get regular beauty and fashion tips, check Fashion and Beauty Fete.
