Electronics firm LG has partnered with a non-governmental organisation to distribute solar refrigerators to children under five-years-old and to pregnant and breast-feeding women in West Pokot.

The partnership between the firm and World Vision Kenya is aimed at improving immunisation among the three groups. The donations specifically target areas where the refrigeration of important items like vaccines, medication and food for children and the elderly is essential, but difficult to maintain. The solar refrigerators can run entirely on power from the sun, with no additional power source. “LG is committed to using its innovative technology to help improve the lives of vulnerable children and communities around the world,” LG said in a statement.
