Clean energy for hospitals

Kyrgyzstan boasts majestic mountain ranges, some of which are blanketed with massive sheets of ice and thick, dense snow. The country is home to more than 2,000 glaciers. But as global temperatures continue to rise, Kyrgyzstan’s frozen landscape is melting, and that has increased the threat of avalanches and floods with major consequences for the population. That’s why authorities are trying to educate residents about the challenges they face, while focusing their efforts on the use of solar power as a reliable and clean source of energy - one that can ensure the population’s health and well-being for decades to come.
