Raising funds to sustainably power hospitals in DRC using solar installation systems.

Main image

The few hospitals there are in rural DRC are reliant on diesel generators that are too expensive to run for any length of time.

By installing solar power systems we can give a strategic hospital the opportunity to use things like ultrasounds, surgical lighting, general anaesthetics, cauterising scalpels and other life-saving equipment.

In 2016 we raised enough to install a 2.4kW solar system at Lwanza Hospital, providing essential 230v electricity to 3 theatres and basic LED lighting throughout the hospital.

In 2017 we put a total of 5kW Solar into Mulongo Hospital, which treats over 50,000 patients each year!

In 2018 we hope to fine tune work done in Lwanza and Mulongo and install safe drinking water systems for patients.

100% of donations given will be spent in the DRC. No money given to this cause will be spent on administration, travel or indirect expenses.
