Curran Hospital is a Lutheran hospital located in Lofa County, Zorzor, Liberia, about 200 miles from the capital city, Monrovia.
The hospital has 125 beds, outpatient services, a school of nursing, and supervision for 23 community health centers and clinics.
Lutheran women have been supporting Curran Hospital for over 100 years. Reliable energy supply is necessary for quality health care delivery. In Liberia, where less than 1% of the population has access to the electricity grid, generating needed power at rural hospitals literally is a life-or-death scenario.
Solar presents an opportunity for a more reliable energy supply--more reliable for the hospital and the many people it serves. This Skip the Grid installation will provide clean, renewable energy to the hospital so it can continue caring for more Liberians. First Solar has generously donated all of the panels needed for this installation, but more contributions are needed to make this project happen.
