"Previously, delivery was difficult using flashlights held in the mouth, as they could neither see clearly nor could give instructions. On various incidents while giving instructions the flashlight broke as it fell off the mouth. Due to poor lighting there were many cases where the amniotic fluid was all over their bodies."
-Lungra Clinic Director
Lungra Health Clinic was the first official SunFarmer solar installation. Travel from Lungra to the regional Bayalpata Hospital requires a 2 hour off-road drive or a 4 hour walk (no public transportation available).
We held a meeting with 35 community members and formed a 5-person "Solar Task Force Committee" to manage the maintenance of the solar installation.
1.6 kW of solar energy at Lungra Health Clinic supported by SunEdison, Possible, and the Nepali Government. Solar energy for Lungra Health Clinic was also funded by Mariko McDonagh and 177 Indiegogo supporters, including: Zoe Ng, Carolyn Wheeler, Neil and Jayne Stahl, Sara McCracken, Sophia Kim, Jinsook Han, and Ian Gray.
