Upcoming field trip to Uganda

We’re so excited for our upcoming field trip to Uganda later this year as part of our Platinum Foundation.

We are extremely thankful to partner with NECA Victoria and Schneider Electric to supply and install a much needed solar system at Kristina Health Clinic (KHC) in Uganda. KHC is located in Otuke, a rural community in northern Uganda currently in the process of overcoming poverty after decades of civil war. This remote community struggles with poor electricity supply, so installing a solar system will allow mums and bubs to receive the best possible care.

The impact

Kristina Health Clinic (KHC) currently delivers an average of one baby per day. The clinic is building a standalone maternity ward facility to cope with the demand. The closest public hospital is 72km away, which unfortunately finds itself with babies in humidity cribs that are not switched on due to lack of power and no backup system. Installing solar power at KHC will allow them to run ultrasound machines, x-ray machines and all necessary medical equipment.

We will be taking a team of 6 young electricians from Victoria, Australia on a 10 day trip to Uganda to fully install the solar system.

What a privilege to use our skills and resources to bless this community.
