Solar Lanterns for Morocco and Gaza
One of SCM’s partners will be leading a medical mission to Gaza and we want to get them LuminAID solar lanterns to take with them so they can distribute them while they are there.
We are also planning to send solar lanterns to Morocco to give to the earthquake survivors who are still living in tents and without electricity. The group taking those lanterns are going at the end of April.
Our goal is at least 500 lanterns with the phone chargers to split between Gaza and Morocco. To do that we need to raise at least $15,500 to be sure we cover shipping. The lanterns retail at $50 each, but as a non-profit, we can get them at a discount, and we will get as many lanterns as we can, so if we go over the goal, that just means more lanterns that will go to Morocco, Gaza or to Lebanon, another country suffering an electricity crisis.
The lanterns will enable people to charge their cell phones and children can continue to study in the evenings. People will be able to go about their lives after dark.
Please support our campaign: $27.50 plus tax and shipping will get one lantern, but any amount will help us reach our goal. Remember, your donations to SCM are tax-deductible as we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
