Mobile Medical Solar Clinics
Together with SOLARKIOSK and the HOPE Foundation, we helped deliver solar-powered clinics to provide health services for communities that lack medical coverage, electricity and purified water. These clinics feature a bed, shelving, refrigeration, air conditioning, routers, and other technology. The 2kW units are designed to be operational 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. They deliver solar power during the day with battery back-up at night.
These mobile solar clinics specifically service women and children in Bangladesh, providing critical emergency and basic maternal care, including C-sections and deliveries, lab work and diagnostics, electrocardiograms, and other sensitive and urgent-care needs.
The HOPE Field Hospital is the largest field hospital for in the refugee camps in South Bangladesh and the surrounding community.
We also understood the need for lights in communities with no electricity. Working together with BRAC and d.Light, we deployed solar-powered lanterns that enable families to commute at night, cook dinner inside their huts, and play with their children after dark.
Without any light sources, the communities become pitch black once the sun goes down. These lights provide the only source of available electricity, and are often shared among 10 or more people.
Making An Impact
We know that even our smallest efforts are making a difference.
Our specific projects have given light to approximately 72,000 people who before lived in darkness, and have supported about 200 people per month for in-patient care and 6,000 people per month for out-patient consultations.
