WE CARE Solar: Solar Suitcases for Rural Health Centers
I was extremely excited to recently have the opportunity to play a small role in a partnership with a wonderful organization called WE CARE Solar. The group's mission is to promote safe motherhood by providing health workers in developing countries with lighting, refrigeration, and mobile communication using solar technology.
The main partner for the project was a group called SAFE Mothers, Safe Babies, who my group is friends with, also working in the Iganga District of Uganda. We helped connect SAFE and WE CARE with several needy rural health centers who will be able to make good use of the solar powered lights provided by the program for nighttime deliveries. I am really impressed with their work and just wanted to share a blog article on the partnership:
The founder of WE CARE is named Laura Stachel, and she is an OB/GYN.
