After three years supplying solar panels to the most disadvantaged families in the town of Nakaseke to gain access to electricity, by 2018 the project has expanded to several neighboring towns and even to a health center.
This is the Life Care Medical Center, a center located 66 km from the capital Kampala, managed by Dr. Robert Kalyesubula and his team, which serves about 9,000 patients a year with HIV. Due to the great difficulties of the area and the low frequency of electricity, the medical center experiences light breaks that put at risk both the health status of patients and that of the personnel. For this reason, a solar panel will be installed to guarantee the correct electrical operation of the center 24 hours a day.
In addition, the installation of 14 more panels is planned in the district of Nakasoke, 8 miles from Nakaseke, mainly for farmers to have electricity for the most elementary tasks of the day. Reducing the risk of fire by using paraffin lamps and helping children read at night are some of the collateral objectives of the project, executed by the NGO Acces Uganda.
Contributing to the improvement of the quality of life and health of the most disadvantaged populations in Africa is one of the main objectives of the Foundation.
