Friends

We were able to connect the solar panels to our existing batteries! The program is running on solar power for about 30% of our needs and we are grateful for your support. This means that we have power during the day when we have gas shortages in Haiti or when the generator requires maintenance. Last week, we relied solely on the solar panels for the daily operations of the program when the generator required routine maintenance. 

In the near future, we hope to be using the solar panels for 60% of our power needs. We need to purchase 30 new batteries to store the energy for this to become a reality. 

Not only are we Haiti's largest cancer screening and treatment program, we are making every effort to use technology to help those we serve. The solar power is one small way that we can help Haiti's environment while also treating those most in need. 

Many thanks!

Hi all

We have now installed 30 solar panels on the roof of the cancer center! The labor and panels were paid for with your hard-earned donations and we are truly grateful.

We are still looking for funds to buy the batteries and inverter, the most important parts. The inverter helps to switch between power sources like the generator and city power and solar panels. The batteries are $400 each, but they are big and strong and durable. This will set us up with electricity for five years!

The operating room is open as well thanks to your previous generosity.  We have already performed over 30 life-saving cases in the operating room!

Please help us to get past the finish line and go green in Haiti! The country and the planet needs it.

 

Vince
