Families in Berastepu Village, North Sumatra were affected by the Sinabung volcanic eruption. Mount Sinabung, which has been on alert since 2015 (Indonesian National Board for Disaster Management, BNPB), erupted again on 2 August 2017. Ash plumes rose four kilometres into the air creating a dangerous situation in surrounding areas. While families were evacuated in the immediate aftermath of the emergency, they are now keen to return to their farmlands, despite the danger, as farming is their only source of income.
By connecting d.light A2 solar lights with families affected by the volcano we can provide a safe source of light to them when they return to their unelectrified villages. An A2 d.light solar light can provide more than four hours of bright light when fully charged, replacing dangerous alternative sources of light such as kerosene lamps.
We will help families living in Berastepu Village, North Sumatra, Indonesia with the help of our local partner, Barisan Pemuda Karo. Barisan Pemuda Karo is a local organization operating in the affected area and they are ready to distribute the solar lights to these families immediately.
The lights are being distributed in response to a natural disaster and will therefore be distributed by Kopernik in partnership with Barisan Pemuda Karo for free.
