Thanks to creativity, innovation, and appropriate technology, a health center in Gagnick Mack, Senegal now has access to hot water!
During his recent visit to the field, CREATE! Executive Director Barry Wheeler trained the CREATE! field technicians in solar water heater design and functionality, including details about how this appropriate technology works to heat water. Following this training, the CREATE! field team installed the solar water heater at the health center in our partner community of Gagnick Mack in Senegal. Residents of both Gagnick Mack and Walo, in addition to 50 local school children, attended the installation.
The solar water heater is now providing hot water to the nurse midwife and health worker employed at the health center! This new, appropriate technology will help the midwife safely bring many happy and healthy babies into the world!
