Samansco not only supplied and installed Solar Power Systems to provide lights and power for TV’s and telecommunications systems, but also trained the nurses and the clinic’s head of staff to empower and enable them to manage their solar systems appropriately.

“We are of great thanks to Samansco , which have made a wonderful development at our clinic. The clinic is now installed with lights and solar panels and has a great change from what it was before. We are glad that our job will now be running smoothly especially with night patients and conducting deliveries” - Banda Ethel - Dite Rural Health Centre.
