Purchase Solar Suitcases
No one should deliver or work in darkness, and yet the need for power and lighting is an often-overlooked aspect of maternal care. While achievements have been made in reducing global maternal and newborn mortality, efforts to save mothers and babies are less likely to succeed without reliable lighting and electricity.
Multiply Your Impact
The Solar Suitcase, as part of a larger set of interventions, can significantly improve maternal and newborn care. Our comprehensive programs have resulted in increased utilization of the facility, decreased delays in accessing and providing care, and overall improved quality MCH care. Health workers report improved sanitation and infection control, cost savings, and less fear of nighttime work.
“While I was in labor and about to deliver my baby, the light went off. I just sighed, but to my amazement, another light source was immediately put on. When I asked later what happened, the health worker told me it was solar light. I was so happy that I have been sharing this with my friends in the community and they have started coming here.” -Mother, Nigeria
