Over 2,000 Solar Lanterns to Support Organisations Addressing Various Social Challenges
Under Panasonic's global 100 Thousand Solar Lantern Project, the company donated over 2,000 Solar Lanterns to eight non-governmental and humanitarian organisations in Myanmar to support their activities to address various social challenges. This is on top of the 5,000 sets donated in 2013.
“Compared to other Southeast Asian countries, electrification rate in Myanmar is relatively low at 49%. We received positive feedback from the recipient organisations on the utility of Solar Lanterns donated last year, such as how it has significantly helped improve working conditions in hospitals and schools. Hopefully, today‘s donation will further contribute to the resolution of social challenges faced by people living in Myanmar’s rural areas,” stated Rika Fukuda, General Manager, CSR & Citizenship Group, Groupwide Brand Communications Division, Panasonic Corporation.
