Waka Waka Powers and Lights were provided to Syrian refugees crossing the borders of Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Lebanon. The solar-powered devices allow them to charge their phones and connect with family members who are caught in the horrors of the civil wars. They also enable them to safely see, study, move about, cook, read and gather in darkness without the risk of tent fires due to kerosene lights. 3600 Waka Lights and 4150 WakaWaka Powers were distributed. The project took place in Akçakale, Turkey.
