Our award-winning We Care Solar Suitcase® is a robust, easy-to-use solar electric system that provides last-mile health facilities with highly efficient medical lighting and power for mobile communication and small medical devices.
Each Solar Suitcase comes with a User Manual that includes instructions on how to use and maximize the performance of the Solar Suitcase and appliances, a troubleshooting section, and a maintenance log.
Our photo-rich installation guide will help installers understand how to properly install the solar panel, Solar Suitcase, and LED lights as well as how to teach health workers to use the Solar Suitcase.
We Care Solar has a suite of 20 instructional videos on all aspects of Solar Suitcase use and installation, covering basics such as how to use a drill to advanced topics such as technical diagnostics.
The Solar Suitcases are built with the highest quality parts. When properly installed, used, and serviced, and with one battery replacement, the Solar Suitcases can provide light for 10+ years. Nonetheless, we understand that maintenance and repairs are sometimes necessary. This page provides detailed information on what to do if you are experiencing a problem with your Solar Suitcase.
We are doing more than just keeping the power on in frontline health facilities. We are strengthening healthcare, creating livelihoods, supporting families, promoting local empowerment and increasing community access. Behind our impact numbers are the people who directly and indirectly benefit from our activities. Many midwives, mothers and installers have graciously shared their stories with us. Hear their stories and read reflections from our own staff.
