ABC News featured WE CARE Solar tonight: “Let There Be Light – World News’ Person of the Week: Dr. Laura Stachel of WE CARE Solar”. Our story is part of ABC’s Million Moms Challenge project to┬áraise awareness and funds to address pregnancy issues and children’s health. ABC shows footage taken when they joined us in Liberia earlier this year. It highlights the extreme issues faced by childbearing mothers in rural clinics in Liberia and illustrates how the WE CARE solar suitcase enables safer childbirths and a more productive environment for healthcare workers. This is a great glimpse into the powerful impact of WE CARE Solar.
