Light plays a very important role, especially in maternity facilities. However, what is taken for granted in the industrialized countries is often not given in the poorer countries. For this purpose, We Care Solar has developed clean energy solutions so that mothers can give birth without any problem and new-borns find a safe environment. The Solar Suitcase makes solar energy easily accessible, provides medical lighting, emergency communication and medical equipment for frontline healthcare facilities. A total of 5,200 health centres have already been equipped, and around 6 million children have been born without the exhaust of kerosene or generators.
