Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, W for Waka waka

Help spread Light and Power to the 1.2 billion people living in the dark




Two  years ago I had to fly back from Autralia to Amsterdam, but in Hong Kong I had to  wait a couple of hours for my flight to the Netherlands, at least I thought so, but it turned out  to be 36 hours due to a tornado over Hong Kong. This meant that I had to cancel my taxi from Amsterdam to my home.The problem was that the battery of my cellphone was almost depleted and I couldn't charge it.So when I read about the waka waka solar powered charger, I immediately bought a couple of these

devices. One for myself, the others as a present for relatives and friends. Another good thing is: the money spent on a waka waka is partly spent on a good cause in Asia or Africa.


Help spread Light and Power to the 1.2 billion people living in the dark

              


The waka waka can be best charged if you put it on a window sill in direct sunlight.

This is something new to me, Wil. Sounds wonderful. I am as great fan of solar power, but have't seen the sun for about a week :(

the windmill is symbolic of Holland, when I read about your saying there is a lot of wind in Holland.
