Sunlabob donates 10 Solar Home Systems to victims of Cyclone Ketsana

On June 2, 2010, Sunlabob donated 10 Solar Home Systems to the Lao Red Cross in Vientiane to aid victims of Cyclone Ketsana. This was in support of a fund raising activity co-organised by the French Chamber of Commerce in Laos (CCIFL) and the Lao Red Cross.

Cyclone Ketsana claimed at least 24 lives in Laos after wreaking havoc in the Philippines and Vietnam in September last year. The natural catastrophe left much of southern Laos under water and caused extensive damage to roads, irrigation networks, schools, hospitals and government offices.

Sunlabob hopes that the Solar Home Systems would help improve the lives of villagers affected by the aftermath of the Cyclone.
