In response to the earthquakes in Van, Turkey, Nokero solar light bulbs are included as a lifesaving item being delivered as part of the ShelterBox disaster relief effort. Just over three weeks ago, millions of people lost power when a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck Turkey on October 23 and again when two weeks later, a magnitude 5.6 earthquake aftershock struck near the city of Van.
With little access to candles or flashlights, earthquake victims are receiving five Nokero solar light bulbs as part of each relief kit from ShelterBox, the internationally-renowned disaster relief organization.
“Nokero solar lights were chosen to be part of the elite ShelterBox response kit after rigorous study and research by the ShelterBox team,” said ShelterBox Head of Operations John Leach. “This is their first deployment in the field, and so far they are performing admirably.”
