“We wish to thank the Government for the help provided to electriciens sans frontieres to get our materials stored, transported, and enable us to work. Our work starts by distributing, connecting, and installing, generators in the remote areas. Electriciens sans frontieres’s work also includes distributing solar light kits to the people of these remote areas. We are going step by step, starting in the south area and we anticipate to move to the south east coast in the near future. We are expecting a team to replace us next week and to continue the work during November. Hopefully at that time everything will be installed and distributed.”
