Distribution of solar lantern

During July 2014, SWDC distributed 1000 solar lanterns to various IDPs from different districts of Benadir region. Majority of IDPs received solar lanterns were those living in the outskirts of Mogadishu in Deyniile and Dharkeynely who have no access to whatsoever any electricity services. These camps are considered to be where the highest number of gender based violence are reported and thus the distribution of  the solar lanterns will reduce incidents. Other people from Boondhere, Hodan, Kaaran, Waberi and Wadajir also received solar lanterns. Local authorities and government representatives including Wadajir district commissioner and DG of Ministry of women & Human Rights Mr Mohamed Omar were invited to join the distribution while IOM representatives were also part of the distribution team. Explanatory practical demonstration were shown to people for easy use after they took it to their home. Both beneficiaries and the authorities showed their appreciation and thanked to the donated agencies/country.
