Solar Panels for Lebanon Hospitals
AMA is working to provide solar panels to 4 hospitals in Lebanon as the country faces economic collapse. At hospitals, parents wait with children in pain, but there is no medication to help them. Surgeries and urgent medical procedures cannot take place due to the lack of electricity. The hospitals AMA is assisting service over 100 000 patients per year, including Lebanese people as well as Palestinian and Syrian refugees and the total cost to provide solar panels is R2 million. This is an urgent appeal as patients are losing their lives due to the lack of power and fuel. The solar units fitted to these hospitals provide a lifetime of difference, removing their dependency on the unstable electricity grid.
