Pelican Products, Inc., a manufacturer of advanced lighting systems and cases, announced on Jan. 21 its contribution of $100,000 worth of head lamps and flashlights to the Haiti relief effort.
The in-kind donation will help aid and assist rescuers, volunteers and emergency response teams in their relief efforts in Haiti. Emergency triage shelters are without lighting, so head lamps allow doctors to treat patients in completely dark locations.
"Our prayers go out to the people of Haiti," said Lyndon Faulkner, Pelican's CEO."It is impossible to see the devastation and not want to help. We hope that our donation, along with the donations of others across the country, will help bring some relief to the people of Haiti."
