#LightItForward | A Tribute to Filipino Frontliners Worldwide

Liter Of Light, the first global Filipino NGO, unveiled a giant image of the Philippine flag at the historic grounds of Luneta Park last November 30, 2020. The giant image is composed of 3,000 sustainable lamps individually assembled by volunteers from all over the country. The renewable lamps bear the names of Filipino health workers from around the world who lost their lives in the fight against Covid-19.

A message of  Hope and Solidarity

"This is our tribute to heroism on a global scale, a tribute to all Filipino frontliners worldwide who have fought to contain the pandemic. It is a profound expression of solidarity with those who have risked life and limb to be in the frontline of the fight," said Illac Diaz, founder of Liter of Light and organizer of the event. 

The Philippine flag is just the first in a series of glowing tableaux. Other groups of volunteers such as doctors have come forward to form equally stunning images of symbolic significance in the global fight using the individually-assembled renewable lights. 

At the end of the exhibit, the lights will be distributed to off-grid communities severely damaged by typhoons Rolly and Ulysses with the help of partner airline, Air Asia Philippines. 

Where there is Light | There is always Hope

Liter of Light is a global grassroots movement committed to provide affordable, sustainable, solar lights to people with limited or no access to electricity. It has brought light to millions of people in off-grid areas across the globe. Liter of Light's grassroots platform operated hubs in 32 countries, and has positively impacted the lives of over 1.5 million individuals globally. 

The solar powered artwork is displayed until December 6, 2020 from 4pm to 9pm at the Luneta Park. 

See you there!
