Nansanga Health Center treats a population of 17,483 people from 4 different villages. Located in Budaka District of Uganda, the health center sits 4 kilometers off of the main electricity grid. In the past, this meant that many births, and other dangerous procedures were preformed at night under the dim light of kerosene lamps. Not only was this unsafe, but vaccines also were unable to be stored without refrigeration, so many young kids weren't given immunizations to preventable diseases. In Fe ...
