Bhubaneswar: As a part of’ Joy of Giving’ programme, the Rotary Club of Bhubaneswar on Wednesday distributed 48 solar lanterns with panel in SOS village, Bhubaneswar.
The solar lanterns were distributed in the presence of Sabita Swain, President, Manik Chand Sharma, Secretary, Suvendu Parida, Director, Public image, past presidents and Rotarians of Rotary club Bhubaneswar.
The initiative would facilitate children studying in the dark.
On this occasion, Sabita Swain said, “It was a joyful moment for all of us when we saw smile on the face of beneficiaries. This effort of the rotary will eventually help in reducing the dependence of children on kerosene lanterns, which otherwise are used for lighting in the absence of power supply. Thereby, it promotes the use of renewable, efficient and clean source of energy for a cleaner environment.”
