YachtAid Global Continues Relief Work

Superyachts carrying soulr food carts to coastal communities in need

A millennial’s solution for disaster-struck communities provides immediate relief, and an ongoing solution to build climate-resilient societies. 

 

A collaboration between the non-profit yacht industry humanitarian organization YachtAid Global and solar power guru Tyler Norris is helping communities recover quickly from natural disasters, and setting them up for brighter futures.

 

While still studying at university, Norris invented a solar-powered food cart capable of effectively chilling goods. Fast forward a couple of years, and several accolades and his Soulr brand has become the epicenter of the micro clean energy movement.

 

In 2017 when a string of hurricanes hit the Caribbean, it was only natural for this innovator to feel compelled to help. Knowing Soulr could assist people in the disaster-struck areas to secure chilling equipment to keep medicines and foods safe, and provide other essential power services, Norris contacted YachtAid Global to see if the plan could be made to work logistically.

 

With the help of a 260ft yacht organized through YachtAid Global, Soulr fridge/freezers, Soulr power stations, AquaPaks, and a full solar mobile kitchen were delivered to the island of Dominica in mid-December, followed by additional units which were sent to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands shortly after.

 

“One of the things that appealed about partnering with Soulr was its determination to help countries become climate resilient and independent,” says YachtAid Global’s Executive Director, Tim Forderer.

 

Soulr equipment was outfitted into health centers, fishing committees, and indigenous villages, providing renewable energy for vulnerable areas.

 

“The speed, efficiency, and leadership that YachtAid Global provided was incredibly instrumental in the delivery of our Soulr equipment,” says Norris.

“Not only did they assist in overcoming the logistical hurdles of shipping, but they reduced our overall cost of deployment by an enormous amount. Without YachtAid Global, we would not have been able to facilitate the level of social impact we initially had set out to accomplish.”

 

Soulr products are unique in that they offer immediate relief with access to cold storage for food/medicine, off-grid micro energy to charge electronics, and the ability to simply be converted to mobile food carts or kiosks. It’s a full closed-loop sustainable system and is designed to help build resilient communities.
