The Solar Suitcase

In 2008 Dr. Laura Stachel was in Northern Nigeria. She was studying ways to lower maternal mortality in state hospitals. The situation was so bad that getting pregnant was considered as having one foot in the grave. One reason for this was lack of reliable electricity. Not willing to accept the situation as it is Laura wrote to her husband who devised a solar solution that eventually became the “Solar Suitcase”. The world is a better place because of people like Laura and her husband who care and are willing to go the extra mile to find a solution. In 2013 Laura Stachel was awarded the “CNN Hero” award. To date more than 300 Solar Suitcases have been assembled and sent to 25 countries.
