Sponsor a Clinic: Help Us Light Every Birth

 

We Care Solar was founded in 2010 to make childbirth safer by ensuring health workers had reliable light and power. To date, we have supported more than 6,000 communities with our Solar Suitcases. Your $3,500* per clinic sponsorship will ensure that a community health center receives a Solar Suitcase for maternal and newborn care. Your support will be combined with the support of our other donors, helping We Care Solar to reach every qualifying public health facility in our Light Every Birth countries with life-saving electricity.

The Impact of Your Sponsorship

By personally supporting the cost of providing clean, renewable energy for maternal care in a last mile health facility you are joining a coalition of like-minded philanthropists, who are helping us to Light Every Birth. Thanks to you, mothers will no longer need to include candles or kerosene as part of their birthing kits, and midwives and doctors will be able to provide prompt emergency obstetric care throughout the night.

*Donations to We Care Solar are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Your sponsorship will be combined with other donations in support of our Light Every Birth initiate. A portion of donations may be used to raise awareness about the issues of electricity deficiency and maternal/newborn mortality through our advocacy efforts.
