I have just watched a story on Russell Howard's Good News T.V. show.
It shows a slum area called Sitio Maligaya. It was as you could imagine, squalid, dark and crammed with people. The houses are dark as they are obviously devoid of sunlight due to having no windows or lighting.
There is a wonderful man called 'Solar Demi', because he has literally brightened up their lives and homes. How? He collects empty 2 litre Coke bottles and fills them with water and bleach. He simply cuts a whole in the roof and slots them in. Hey presto light filters into the room, amazing. He has fitted 643 bottles so far.
How we take things for granted wouldn't you agree. I now wonder why something so simple can't be done all over?
