#Solarforsyria: In search of light
“WakaWaka is twice as efficient as any other solar lamp on the market.”
“Banning darkness in places where light is still a luxury."
"It's the worst refugee crisis since the Rwanda genocide 20 years ago."
how does waka waka help?
Access to light and power is critical for the refugees in Syria. WakaWaka's solar powered devices provide immediate assistance as well as long-term relief and enables survivors to see after dark and to charge their phones to connect with family members and loved ones elsewhere.
Same as with the relief efforts in the Philippines in the #SolarforPhilippines campaign, WakaWaka is working again with the International Rescue Committee. After last year's 26.000 units that were provided to Syrian refugees, IRC and WakaWaka aim to provide even more this year. The IRC ensure us that the WakaWakas are indeed provided to the families that need them the most. The WakaWaka Foundation works together with this world renowned organization to retrieve the stories and images behind the provided aid. Please have a look at our Impact Map to track all provided WakaWakas worldwide.

by the WakaWaka founders.
- 7 million Syrians have fled their homes because of the civil war.
- 2 million of them have crossed the border to Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Lebanon.
- Every day 6000 more Syrian refugees leave the country.
While the number of refugees increases day by day, the most basis care and needs are missing. Because of the lack of electricity in most refugee camp there hardly is any light and communication is almost impossible. Sadly this situation is expected to get worse before any improvement.
Working together with the International Rescue Committee, WakaWaka helps by bringing light and power to the refugee families that need it the most.
