Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has expressed gratitude to the sponsors and donors of the solar light devices for the residents of Simariki Island in Barangay Talon-talon.
The beneficiaries are composed of 65 Indigenous Peoples families who are in dire need of solar lamps as the area has no access to power supply, she said.
The lamps are powered by solar rechargeable batteries.
The sponsors of the Liter of Light Project of the Shelter Foundation include the S&P Global, Air Aisa Airlines, Liter of Light Movement, and Ateneo de Zamboanga University- Center for Community Extension Services (AdZU-CCES), among others.
Climaco was represented by Executive Assistant Engr. Al Urao in the unveiling of the project, which was held recently.
