Solar Equipment hit by Lightning

We have had terribly bad luck at the Alanouwaly Centre in Guinea! The Computer project was going well and we were getting ready to start the sewing project.

When lightning hit the solar installation!
Most of the equipment was saved by the extensive earth cables and surge control, but the converter is not salvageable. We have already raised most to replace it and for extra lightning protectors on the roof.

We need to raise a little more to replace & re-install as well as putting more extensive protection. And now our Guinea group's director also needs help to fix his teeth! He has been in huge pain and largely unable to work.

Lightning storms are massive in the rainy season in Guinea and it's difficult to protect yourself 100%, but we are planning 3 times more protection. The strength of lightning is hugely unpredictable.

Projects were getting more established and this is a huge set-back for the Alanouwaly centre! So Please help us to let people in Guinea help themselves! Create your own fundraising page? Contact us for more info.
