Energizing Rural Health Services in Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone's health care system was exposed as underprepared and underperforming by the recent ebola outbreak, leaving the country in dire need of rebuilding and improving on the existing infrastructure.

As a co-funded project any dollar donated will be matched in a 3:1 ratio by an existing approved funding source from the EU Energy Facility.
Solar energy for Madina Community Health Post
The Madina clinic serves an estimated catchment population of 5,714 people and provides primary health care for 13 villages.

Solar power can provide the ideal solution, providing cost effective, low maintenance energy for lighting, equipment and other critical needs. project reportread updates from the field
