Title SELF`s Response to the Haiti Disaster
Short Description Following the devastating earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haitian women’s need for improved medical care has been more keenly felt than ever before. To assist communities in fulfilling this need, SELF has partnered with NRG Energy, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, 11th Hour Project, Partners In Health (PIH) and others to accelerate the solar electrification of hospitals, clinics, schools, irrigation systems, fish farms, street lights and other community services. A major motivating factor remains the improvement of women’s access to medical care. SELF and its partners have already provided solar electricity to the clinics in Boucan Carré, Hinche and Cerca la Source and are working to speed the process of solar electrifying more sites in Haiti.
