For all those who have been following our Solar Suitcase installation story, here are two videos that show its immediate impact. The first shows SAFE Founder and President, Jacqueline Cutts, working with the spokeswoman for AMREF’s Stand Up for African Mothers campaign, midwife Esther Madudu, to resuscitate a premature newborn under the lights of a Solar Suitcase installed only 5 minutes before the baby’s birth. The second video shows an interview with Esther talking about how the existence of reliable lighting helped her provide quality care to both the premature newborn and her mother!
To all who care about women, mothers, children, and families:
Recently, Safe Mothers, Safe Babies in our partnership with WE CARE Solar started working with the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF). Today, we are asking everyone who cares about women, mothers, children, and families to join us in signing AMREF’s Stand Up for African Mothers Campaign petition, seeking to train 30,000 new midwives before 2015, so that more pregnant women get access to the life-saving care that they need. Signing the petition will take less than a minute, and it’s all online. Your signature can make a difference! Make a stand for the women, children, and families of this world today!!!
