2017 11 Solar Fridge

Sunlabob recently completed installation of solar-powered refrigerators and lighting system in Lao Sau, Phadeang, and Muang Mouy health centers in Luang Prabang Province, Lao PDR.

Funded by Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and contracted by Save the Children (SCI), the project focused primarily on the provision of reliable energy for lighting and storage of vaccines which in turn improves availability and quality of health care in remote off grid areas. These new systems will allow staff at the health centers to now respond to emergencies faster, and provide aid to patients during the night.

“Access to energy enables better access to health facilities in the remote communities, it is that simple!” said Daophet Vongsakhamhoui, who heads the Community Development of Sunlabob.
