Tenegar Clinic OIC Interview about Impact of Solar Lights

My name is Krubo Davis and I’m the OIC (officer-in-charge[?]) for Tenegar Community Clinic. As I told you, Sister Miatta, the lights that were given to us are very useful to us. This clinic has four catchment communities and we have 8447 population (people) to treat in this small clinic.  Most of the times, the deliveries can come to us at night. So, the lights that you gave us are helping us in that the traditional midwives who care for pregnant women in the villages use the lights to transport pregnant women to the clinic. We told the midwives not to do deliveries again but to bring them to the clinic. One of the midwives was bitten by a snake while traveling to the clinic. Since they have the light, they are able to see where they are walking. Some of them live 3 to 4 hours from the clinic. So, we really appreciate the lights. Since you gave us the lights, we don’t have any problems with them. They are still working fine, even the solar plates (panels) are doing fine because the people came here and taught us how to use it, how to switch it on, and how to switch it off. I am appealing to you for our traditional midwives to get lights. We have about 26 traditional midwives.

    I could appreciate more if the type of solar lights provided was mentioned and of course the capacity.
    Then other development agency that have the means, could think of up grading or replacingw what was supplied with an improved one

      Panasonic Solar LED lantern BG-BL03. The lantern contains five LEDs and is designed to emit light 360 degrees. This wide emission angle makes it suitable for use in everyday life such as at family dinners and for children studying. With a touch of the button on the lantern, the brightness can be adjusted between High (100 lx), Medium (40 lx) and Low (6 lx). The lantern has a handle, which allows for flexibility in setting up the light. It can be hung in the room, placed on a table or carried with the user. When fully charged, the battery run time is approximately six hours on High setting, about 15 hours on Medium and roughly 90 hours when set at Low*4.
