Victims of Japan’s Earthquake Received LED Solar Powered Lanterns from Panasonic

LED-solar-powered-lanterns-from-Panasonic-to-JapanPanasonic is hoping to lighten things up a little, quite literally, with a donation of 4,000 LED solar powered lanterns for those survivors in Japan left without much of anything.

The LED solar powered lanterns have been sent to Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, in the hopes that they’ll help add a bit of comfort and assistance to those who have been hit hardest by the quake.

Panasonic states, “One of the LED solar powered lanterns also includes USB output which can be used to recharge mobile phones. We hope that the products will be able to bring light in midst the situation, especially where electrical supply is still limited. Panasonic Group and its employees sincerely hope for swift recovery of the people and areas affected by the disaster.”

It’s a kind move, and one greatly appreciated, we’re sure. The LED solar powered lanterns will make a good addition to the ShelterBox kits sent over earlier, which include everything from a cook stove to water purification tools.
