First Lady Donates To Health Institutions

First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa yesterday launched the Light Every Birth initiative at Beatrice Rural Hospital in partnership with the United States- based We Care Solar to provide clean renewable energy for safe birth in Zimbabwe in a move aimed to providing light for childbirth nationwide through promoting solar energy at local health institutions and Africa at large.

“Light Every Birth brings together national and local leaders, corporations, foundations and NGOs to collaborate on an innovative programme to improving maternal and neonatal care,” The first lady said.

Amai Mnangagwa called upon the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology to equip students at institutions with knowledge on how to manufacture solar systems.

“We need to equip students at tertiary institutions to learn how to manufacture solar systems and repair solar kits to solve electricity challenges facing the country,” She said.

We Care Solar co-founder and executive director Dr Stachel said her organisation will continue to work with the First Lady.

“We Care Solar signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health and Child Care, pledging to work together to ‘Light Every Birth’,

“We handed over 200 solar kits to the First Lady, Amai Mnangagwa to donate to health institutions of her choice.

“We will also provide an additional 600 solar suitcases to health centres across the country lacking reliable electricity this year.

“We are dedicated to bring in clean energy to health centres. We want to light every birth. We are thrilled that the Government of Zimbabwe is partnering with us to honour all families by having safe delivery in health centres to help the country. We are thrilled to be lighting every birth. She said

We Care Solar donated 200 solar kits to complement the First Lady’s effort to light hospitals and clinics of her choice across the country.
