Light Every Birth / Solar Energy for Maternal and Newborn Health

Light Every Birth
Light Every Birth

We Care Solar designs innovative Solar Suitcases to save lives in childbirth by powering last mile health centers with clean energy. Hundreds of thousands of last mile health centers lack reliable electricity. Midwives and doctors struggle in near-darkness or delay critical procedures; lives are lost. Our compact, rugged, easy-to-use Solar Suitcases have high-efficiency medical lights and power for phones, fetal monitors, and other devices. We train local health workers to install, operate, and maintain Solar Suitcases. We empower women and their families—working with communities to give every clinic the power to save lives.
