Haiti: Rebuilding Haiti with Solar Clinics


Objective: Provide a health clinic with solar power in a region welcoming a lot of refugees
Haiti is still recovering from its devastating 2010 earthquake which destroyed the country’s infrastructure, injured millions and created waves of refugees. Without consistent electricity, health clinics have been depending on costly diesel generators which reduce funds for actual health care.
In Bellodène, Haiti, the Foundation has been working in partnership with the Solar Electric Light Fund and Partners in health to provide solar panels for a health clinic. 

The solar panels will provide:

  • 20 KW of power
  • reduce diesel generator use and thus costs
  • installation and maintenance jobs for locals.
