These birthing centers are reliant on municipal energy which is regularly shut off at scheduled times of day depending on the region. Unfortunately it is all but impossible to schedule a baby’s arrival. Babies are often born by the light of a flashlight.
Long Term Impact: The new infant/toddler nutrition center, already under construction, will provide more room for the growing under five population at PAHS. A solar panel system will provide reliable and more cost effective energy for the new much larger nutrition center, so that more funds can be redistributed to the direct care of the children.
