BOSTON – Three years on from the devastating earthquake that brought Haiti to its knees and the world to its aid, there is, by many accounts, light emerging from the darkness.
It is a light that radiates, in part, from several sources right here in Boston, people who have dedicated extraordinary time, effort and money to help Haiti build a teaching hospital and a new orphanage. And you can literally be part of spreading the light through a campaign by a startup company known as MPOWERD.
MPOWERD has developed solar-powered lanterns for Haiti that can end what this company calls “energy poverty.”
But I will come back to the light that these three projects — the hospital, the orphanage and the lanterns — provide.
