Solar Liberty Foundation Donated Solar Kits to the Deaf Village in Leveque, Haiti.

Translation for non-signers: "Hello. My name is Tony Brucato. I am from Buffalo, New York. I came to Solar Liberty Foundation, which is is abbreviated as SLF. SLF is founded and run by Paige Mecca. SLF's mission is to donate solar kits to poor, developing nations. The kits provide solar energy. SLF donated four solar kits to the Deaf Village in Leveque, Haiti. Here I will show you how the kit works. This is the solar panel which absorbs the energy from the sun. This is the battery where the solar energy is stored. This is the whole array of chargers for cell phones, cameras and laptops. And for night times, when there is no electricity, Deaf Haitians can use these two solar LED lights to chat in sign language. That's how it works. I am really excited about bringing and giving the kits to the Deaf Village in Haiti. We thank, thank (signed it twice) Solar Liberty Foundation for the donation. Thank you very much!"

On behalf of Solar Liberty Foundation, thank YOU, Tony!

Anthony gives a brief demo on how to use miswak. Miswak is a natural twiggy toothbrush and it is still commonly used in Africa and Middle East. Miswak has been around for thousands of years and there is no reason to discontinue it due to having modern toothbrushes and dental care. Cleaning the teeth with miswak is naturally fun and it has benefits such as reducing the build-ups of plaque and gingivitis. It can be used to pass the time such as meditating or tending a vegetable garden. Miswak can be found at some natural food stores. For your own health safety, consult your dentist and do some research on miswak before giving it a try.
