23rd November 2015 – Amid the deepening global refugee crisis, the IKEA Foundation will restart its ‘Brighter Lives for Refugees’ campaign between November 29th to 19th December in 40 countries, through which the foundation will donate €1 to the United Nations refugee agency for every light-emitting diode (LED) product sold in all the big-box retailer’s stores and online.


“Finding innovative ways to help refugees is enormously important. The clean energy we’re able to provide with the support from the IKEA Foundation is a practical solution to an essential need and transforms the quality of life for many,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres in a news release on the effort to provide light and energy from renewable sources to refugee camps.


According to the High Commissioner’s Office (UNHCR), the funds generated through the campaign will help in provision of solar-powered street lights, lanterns and solar energy systems that will support energy self-reliance among refugees and host communities in UNHCR camps in Asia, Africa and the Middle East and fund improved access to primary education.
According to UNHCR estimates, there were 19.5 million refugees globally at the beginning of this year, with more than half that number being children.
