First solar lights installed at Port-au-Prince, Haiti airport is aiding volunteers working at night.

Palm City, Fla., U.S.A. - As the fog cleared Tuesday morning, at 9:32 AM EST, the DC-3 flown by Missionary Flights International took off carrying the first wave of long-term solar lighting relief for Haiti.

Two Sol Inc. representatives Victor Sotolongo, former U.S. Marine and registered nurse and Mario Gonzalez are flying to Haiti to ensure rapid installation of the donated solar lights allowing relief and aid workers to continue their operations around the clock.

The solar lights onboard and will be delivered and installed as quickly as possible at a private medical clinic and orphanage to help with victim care, aid distribution and security.

This is just the beginning.

This first delivery of lights and volunteers is only the start of Sol Inc.’s commitment to donating over $300,000 in solar lights for Haitian security and safety. This immediate solution will benefit the recovery and rebuilding efforts in Haiti for decades. As documented on WPTV NBC, Sol, Inc. has also produced and packaged one hundred additional solar lights for Haitian relief efforts as well.

Sol needs:
- Planes and crew that can carry 200 pounds plus 20 foot long poles per light (like the DC-3.)
- Validated relief agencies who can state exactly where they need the LED solar lights installed to improve the security and safety of their relief operations.

The company actively seeks aid organizations ‘on the ground’ in Haiti that can help coordinate delivery and installation of these lights for their own relief operations. If a relief organization in Haiti needs long-term reliable nighttime illumination, please contact Sol, Inc at agencycontact@solarlighting.com.
