London, UK, February 27, 2023/ - Leading solar energy solutions company, Jackery, today announced a new partnership with the International Rescue Committee and is encouraging other businesses to consider supporting the organization.
This partnership comes at a time when humanitarian aid and support are in vital need around the world, including across Europe. Over 100 million people have now been forcibly displaced worldwide—including millions uprooted from their homes.
Helping vulnerable families and individuals has always been part of Jackery’s DNA since its inception in California over a decade ago as it managed its Jackery Cares program. As Jackery expands into Europe, the natural progression was to partner with the IRC and this commitment was cemented with a cash donation and supplying much-needed solar power solutions.
Ricky Ma, Head of EMEA, Jackery said:
“Jackery Cares has always been at the heart of our business, and we are pleased to become official partners with the IRC. We have been looking for a charity to partner with as we currently expanding into Europe, and the IRC seemed the obvious solution.
“We have been devastated to see the current natural disasters and human suffering recently, and we are confident this can help IRC support those in desperate need around the globe.”
Vice President, International Philanthropy and Partnerships, International Rescue Committee said:
"Commitments from partners across sectors are needed to match the scale of today’s humanitarian needs. We are grateful that Jackery’s support comes at a time when solar generators are desperately needed in communities affected by crisis and disaster."
Jackery is actively encouraging businesses and individuals to help IRC continue to provide the support that is desperately needed around the world. To learn more about the IRC, please visit: https://www.rescue.org/how-to-help
