This Mother’s Day, we honor a very special mother – Evelyn Stachel – who passed away this year. Evelyn was the mother of WE CARE Solar co-founder, Laura Stachel. Evelyn was a life-long social activist, a devoted mother whose own life was saved by a blood transfusion after she delivered her first child, and a dedicated supporter of WE CARE Solar. Evelyn had visited Nigeria, and was eager to volunteer. Sadly, she died after a complication from surgery.

WE CARE Solar has started a memorial fund, called “Evelyn’s Light,” to honor Evelyn’s spirit and passion. This fund will support our Solar Suitcase program, including a blood bank refrigerator requested by a state hospital in Nigeria that provides care for dozens of childbearing women every month.

If you would like to contribute a tax-deductible donation to this fund, click on our Donate button, or mail a check written to our fiscal sponsor, “INVENEO,” with “Evelyn’s fund” inscribed in the memo line.

Mail your donation to: WE CARE Solar, P.O. Box 5765, 2705 Webster Street, Berkeley, CA 94705.

Thank you!
