Today is World Environment Day. Maternity Africa cares about the environment. Kivulini Maternity Centre has a biogas storage and utilisation system in which human waste can decompose safely. The gases are then used for cooking in the kitchen.
Kivulini Maternity Centre also has an array of solar electricity panels. This decreases our carbon footprint significantly, helps to ensure a steady and reliable supply of electricity – crucial for saving lives – and, with the money saved from having to purchase expensive electricity, can spend more on vital patient services.
Where possible, Maternity Africa applies more environmentally friendly and sustainable approaches to delivering its objectives.
