One of ten short stories of PWRDF and partner projects.
"In Mozambique many babies are born in clinics without electricity for proper lighting. This presents a challenge for nighttime deliveries. When nurses have been known to hold their cellphones in between their teeth to provide light. To solve this problem PWRDF partnered with EHALE and We Care Solar to install solar suitcases at health care facilities in 2016. Volunteers were trained to mount the bright yellow plastic suitcase to the wall of a clinic and wire it to a solar panel on the roof. The suitcase is equipped with headlamps for health care workers, flashlights, a Doppler to monitor baby's health and charging stations for cellphones. Currently 30 solar suitcases are welcoming babies into the world at night". [Text of entire article.]
