Description of Innovation

In areas with undependable power grids, providers face the significant challenge of loss of adequate light and electricity needed to carry out medical procedures, compromising the safety of their patients.

We Care Solar developed a portable, cost-effective Solar Suitcase that can provide health care workers with reliable lighting, mobile communication, and blood bank refrigeration using solar electricity.

Approximately 300 Solar Suitcases are being used in 25 countries around the world with plans to expand regional programs in Sierra Leone, Uganda, and Malawi.
