Nkhoma Hospital Solar Project

Nkhoma Hospital Solar Project 

We have now launched the ‘Nkhoma Hospital Solar Project’ in partnership with Employ My Ability, with the aim of raising £100,000 to provide solar powered electricity to the hospital as they are currently without power for long periods of time.

The result of no electricity is:

  • Premature Babies can only rely on kangaroo care, the body warmth of their mothers (and hospital staff) because the heaters in the premature baby room do not work
  • There is no vital supplemental oxygen for patients with breathing problems or patients who need surgery as the oxygen concentrators need power
  • Medication that should be kept cool, gets too warm in the African heat to be viable
  • Operations are cancelled
  • Surgical equipment cannot be cleaned
  • The laboratory cannot cross match blood so vital blood transfusions are delayed
  • Babies are delivered by torch light
  • Wounds are sutured by torch light
This is an exciting initiative and will make a real difference to the way that Nkhoma Hospital is able to operate and, most importantly, will help save lives.

Please donate to support our cause.

Positive Steps Charity is a small UK based charity, based in Dorset, run entirely by volunteers. It works to assist in providing medical and health care assistance to people in Nkhoma Hospital and the surrounding area in Malawi directly through financial support for medical care and travel and indirectly through support with training and provision of resources where needed.
