Because of "Solar Suitcases," more than 400 maternity clinics that labored in darkness will have light, according to an article on The Huffington Post website. The Solar Suitcases will provide light and power for midwives and doctors to deliver babies, conduct c/sections, treat pregnancy complications, and care for newborn babies in 25 countries.

The Solar Suitcase were created by We Care Solar to bring light and essential power to health facilities cut off from modern electricity. 

The founders of We Care Solar were recently named Healthcare Heroes by CNN, but Dr. Laura Stachel, co-founder We Care Solar said in the article that the real heroes are the health workers that work through the night in remote health centers with medical lighting, cell phone charging, and fetal monitoring provided by the Solar Suitcase, a complete solar electric system that fits in a portable case.
