Challenge

Currently, there is no power grid or electrical infrastructure to serve the population or the clinic. Several thousand people will be direct beneficiaries, being able to receive medical care day or night. There will be about 5 - 6 full time medics at any given time at the clinic. Today they have to rely on flashlight at night, cannot store or provide vaccines, or positively identify diseases.

Solution

Technical design is complete. Local partner BGET will procure the equipment, help install it, and train the medics in the installation, operation and maintenance of the system. The communities will provide unskilled construction labor.

Long-Term Impact

Medical personnel in the clinic will be able to properly attend to the basic medical needs of the 13 villages, including vaccination, malaria treatment, parasitic diseases, births, and amputations due to mines and the ongoing civil war in the
