Bringing Light to Developing-World Hospitals

When the sun sets around the world, more than 400 maternity clinics that once labored in darkness now have light. Reliable, robust and easy-to-use Solar Suitcases provide light and power for midwives and doctors to deliver babies, conduct C-sections, treat pregnancy complications, and care for newborn babies in 25 countries. For many mothers and babies, that light means a life with a healthy start. This video explains how We Care Solar, the small, non-profit Laura Satchel and her husband formed five years ago, brings light and essential power to health facilities cut off from modern electricity. It also shows how two people made a difference in the world after they perfected a simple technological solution.

Do you have an idea that could change the world?
