Help Bring Electricity to Puerto Rico

Help Bring Electricity to Puerto Rico

Just $11,000 to go!

Thanks to all of you and your generosity, we are getting close to completing fundraising on Phase 2 of the project - building a solar electricity run medical clinic in a community without a hospital.
We have just $11,000 left to raise to close Phase 2 funding and install the clinic.  Our goal is to help create a more resilient community and reduce carbon footprint, but more than anything, to ensure those with medical needs in areas without a hospital can get the help they need.

Since the hurricane, locals have been carrying more items that are useful in disasters, like candles, light bulbs, medicines, flashlights, insect repellent, and propane gas, but we saw from the response to Phase One, that solar panels give a different degree of confidence and security to those who felt isolated, scared and vulnerable when the hurricane came. 

Medical emergencies, however, cannot be planned, and we are determined through Phase 2 to ensure safe, easily accessible medical help.

Thank you for all your help. We are now near the home stretch.  Together, let's make a difference.
