#EnergyPoverty destroys our planet. People are forced to burn toxic kerosene for light in the night. Each kerosene lamp emits 370kg of CO2 into the atmosphere every single year! The good news is, dirty kerosene can be replaced by clean and safe #solar. #EarthDay #ClimateAction https://t.co/65YTAYegVA

“You cannot do anything in the dark. Imagine keeping a patient who is unwell in the dark, throughout the night,” Tiwonge Miti, nurse at Chibolya Rural Health Clinic, Zambia. SolarAid delivered #solarlights to this rural clinic as #COVID19 hit. Together, we can power #healthcare. https://t.co/u4K0x4Jz5y

Worrying news coming out of Africa where 3 in 4 clinics are operating without reliable access to electricity. We are putting measures in place to keep our teams safe. #PoweringHealthcare https://t.co/1bvcJRNlgb

If you are in the dark about what to give to your Dad this #FathersDay—look no further! Every light purchased helps fund our work to increase access to safe, clean, solar lighting and electricity in rural Africa. Light changes everything. 💡 👉 https://t.co/diMFp47bu4 https://t.co/AnZKDqlsYD

“A lot of women prefer coming to the hospital in the morning even when labour starts in the night because they don’t want to risk things going wrong because of giving birth in the dark,” Juliette, Malawi has come with her daughter, who is in labour, to the nearest clinic. #solar https://t.co/6avDTo9Kzl

What is the value of light? At a rural health clinic lacking access to electricity, it can mean the difference between life and death. When our #Zambia team recently visited a rural clinic, they found the #solarlights chained to the walls. #PoweringHealthcare #SDG7 https://t.co/eongtNhdGz

This is our moment. #ClimateChange is real and affects the people who created it the least, the most. Together we can tackle climate change and end #energypoverty by 2030. The time is Now. #WorldEnvironmentDay #SDG7 #GenerationRestoration #WorldEnvironmentDay2021 https://t.co/qK4uJzpmCI

1 in 4 health facilities across sub-Saharan Africa have no reliable access to electricity. No clinic should be left in the dark.. 🏥 #Solar can light up clinics in the dark. https://t.co/tjsBfmK8js #PoweringHealthcare #SDG7 #Healthcare https://t.co/SzHwzAsnwA

13-year-old Aliya Ali's dream is to become a #teacher. Mandevu village, #Malawi has no electricity and days are cut short. Since her parents started renting #solar lights, her grades improved. "Now I can surely say my dream of becoming a teacher will come to pass one day." #sdg7 https://t.co/jOIcWjDErS

Chaze in Zambia decided to become a #solar #entrepreneur two years ago to improve the lives of her two daughters. She has now been able to access a loan through our partner @lendwithcare to buy solar light stock. Light changes everything. #microfinancing#SDG7 https://t.co/t26hNuWj70
