Our mission is to raise funds for the purchase and distribution of solar charged lighting and power packs (with 120 volt output) to help the neediest residents until mains electricity has been restored.
Rob Wassell of Cay Electronics at Nanny Cay, Tortola states that once the immediate needs of water, food and security are met it will be a long term challenge to survive and to rebuild homes and businesses without electrical power. According to Mark Vanterpool, Minister of Communications and Works, it will be many months before power is restored.
Without electricity there will be no way to run power tools to repair and rebuild homes. There will be no light at night for a long time to come. It will be a major challenge to recharge mobile phones and computers, to pump household cistern water for cooking, washing, showering and flushing, and to refrigerate milk and fresh food.
One hundred percent of all funds raised will go to helping British Virgin Islanders rebuild their homes and community.
