SAVING LIVES WITH THE POWER

OF THE SUN

Less than one in five
East African children's wards has access to
lifesaving oxygen
Pneumonia is the leading cause of childhood mortality worldwide, but treatment with oxygen in the developing world remains limited. Why?
01 / LIMITED ACCESS

Access to oxygen in resource-limited settings is minimal. In Uganda, less than 10% of children's wards have access to oxygen, which is necessary for supporting patients with pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses.

02 / LIMITED SUPPLY

Conventional oxygen cylinders rely on robust supply chains for refills, which is not viable in rural communities.

03 /LIMITED RELIABILITY

Grid-powered oxygen concentrators are often unreliable due to regular power outages, leaving patients without oxygen for days at a time.

 

SOLAR OXYGEN

The solution to oxygen delivery in low-resource settings
RELIABLE

Solar oxygen systems provide a consistent supply of oxygen off the grid, combining renewable energy with effective storage to offer patients 24/7 access to therapy.

COST-EFFECTIVE

Solar oxygen systems are incredibly cost-effective, saving lives while requiring minimal maintenance or upkeep beyond initial installation, compared to other oxygen technologies.

EASY TO USE

Solar oxygen systems have minimal moving parts and are easy to use with limited training for health care staff in rural areas.
