Mpunge Health Center 3, yesterday (April 20) received a state-of-the-art solar system from SunTap Uganda.
The project is funded by the polish development organization, and this cause is aimed at providing power to the health centre along the Mukono-Katosi Road, which has for a long time grappled with lighting and other energy issues.
Vincent Muzangandda, a resident of the area expressed his concern about the terrible state of their community.
“To start with, the community has had no serious health facility. Even after getting one, we have had no power to the extent of using torches and lamps to have women deliver,” he said.
“As a matter of fact, people have feared to go to this health center especially at night,” he added.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Ms. Esther Katete, the Marketing Manager SunTap Uganda, noted that the company took on the project because it has potential to benefit a lot of people.
“With this energy solution, this health center will go a long way in providing the people of this area with the best medical services all day all night. And for us, that is a milestone reached,”Katete said.
According to Ms. Loy Kyozaire, the Technology Manager at SunTap Uganda, the company has reached several clients both in rural and urban setting.
She stressed that the company is largely owned and run by women who have a strong background in the energy sector.
SunTap offers a range of high-quality solar home systems, solar security lights, Solar Water heaters that are designed to fit the needs of residential, Schools, Hotels, commercial buildings, health centers, and Lodges among others. Companies like these would need to be known by the wider population, since it tends to offer a healthy alternative. In this regard, they might benefit from the services of companies similar to a solar distributor and manufacturer digital marketing agency.
SunTap Uganda which has been in operations in Uganda since 2015 is certified by UNBS, and is a member of Uganda Solar Energy Association (USEA).
Katete noted that they keep winning such projects because of their commitment to provide quality work and the efforts they have previously shown.
“We have successfully delivered energy solutions to other organizations before, such as the International Alert sites in Bunagana and Mpondwe borders,” said Katete.
