March 6 - 15, 2020
This project was from March 6-15 2020, at Radio Lumiere's flagship studio on Cote Plage 16, in Carrefour. This is a suburb to the west of Port-au-Prince.
We installed a major solar power generating system to supply electricity to the studio. This is a real Godsend as it will dramatically reduce Radio Lumiere's monthly electric and diesel fuel expenses.
We are grateful for the prayer and financial support from our many supporters. We especially wish to thank the Gunterberg Family Foundation and SAVE for their generous financial support on this project.
