Ensuring power supply in the children's home - vital for some children's survival!
The problem with electricity in South Africa:
Although the infrastructure in South Africa has been improved in recent years, the local energy suppliers cannot ensure a constant supply of energy. As a result, the power goes out for many hours every day. This is a critical and untenable situation for the care and treatment of disabled and seriously ill children. Some of them need the support of medical equipment and must be kept warm during the cold winter months, in South Africa as well. Or our baby drop: if the power supply is out longer than our emergency diesel generator can run, it is very difficult to monitor the baby drop. Without power, we also have a hard time providing security.
How can the problem be solved?
We need to become independent of public electricity. The solution: a solar system! This should not only produce electricity for acute use, but also store solar energy. In addition, the system must be sufficiently large and, above all, sustainable.
Where should the panels be installed?
The panels are to be installed on our new building "the sun".
The large solution with 80 kw, 273 panels currently costs the equivalent of about 3.607.668,40 R.
The small intermediate solution with 30 kw, 80 panels currently costs the equivalent of about 1.682.227,40 R.
We need your help!
The plant is urgently needed, but without help we cannot finance it. To get a little closer to our goal of the solar plant, we are applying for grants from various institutions, but private donations are also needed - absolutely every euro counts!
Help and donate to finance the solar plant, to secure the electricity permanently and to ensure the supply of the children!
