Sunnan - IKEA and UNICEF help enlighten children
Starting in June 2009, UNICEF receives one SUNNAN solar-powered lamp for every SUNNAN sold in IKEA stores worldwide. This will enable children in homes without electricity to do their homework even after dusk.
The first donations go to UNICEF in Pakistan, helping children in refugee camps and remote villages without electricity in two provinces. The province of Balochistan was struck by a major earthquake in October 2008, when thousands of people became homeless and several hundred schools were destroyed. In the North West Frontier province, unrest has affected half the population and displaced many thousands.
