Hope Hospital Solar Power Project Feb. 2021
In our last newsletter, we let you know about the need for Hope Hospital to transition to a solar power system because the city power was totally unreliable and using generators as the primary power source was not sustainable.
Hope Hospital now has a reliable source of power which will allow it to provide quality healthcare in Port au Prince without the excessive costs, and constant threat of disruption, that came from the previous reliance on generator power.
This was a major undertaking – with a big price tag – but thanks to you we have already received funding for 85% of the total cost of the system.
In February, Hope Hospital’s generators burned out due to overuse resulting from the absence of reliable electrical power from the city. This forced the Foundation to buy a new generator, the cost of which was mostly covered by CFCH supporters.
Just click on the solar panels above to see a brief overview and update on this project to show you what you have helped the Foundation accomplish.
Thanks for being our partners in this great work.
