Notes from the Field
Today, we’re shining a spotlight on one of our nonprofit partners, Convoy of Hope, who teamed up with a local organization in order to bring light to the homeless population of the Ozarks.
Eager to learn more about how our lights are used in communities affected by Cyclone Idai, we were lucky to have the opportunity to speak with Jeremy Williamson, an International Deployment Manager with Convoy of Hope.
This season, we've been so honored to see the way people and communities have banded together to help families in need in Puerto Rico, Dominica, the US Virgin Islands, Barbuda, and beyond. On our recent feature on Shark Tank, we shared how much we've accomplished together, thanks to grass-roots support and our incredible partner organizations. We want to highlight their crucial work, and support them with so much left to do. Find out more ways to get support relief and recovery this holiday season.
LuminAID is back to light up Shark Tank, just in time for the holidays! The new episode features LuminAID's partnership with Convoy of Hope to bring safe solar light and charging to families left without power in Puerto Rico, after a devastating hurricane season.
Much of Puerto Rico is still without power one month after Hurricane Maria, and families are still struggling to recover without electricity. LuminAID co-founders Anna and Andrea decided to fly to Puerto Rico with hundreds of solar phone charger and solar lights in tow. They distributed aid with humanitarian partner Convoy of Hope, and saw the impact of that access to solar is having for families in Puerto Rico.
