You have likely heard of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the independent, international, medical organization often featured in the news for helping people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from health care. You’ve seen the incredible photos of their medical staff performing emergency surgery and bandaging up wounds, but have you ever considered the invisible wounds of patients who endure psychological trauma?

Whether it is dealing with the loss of a family member or reliving the horror of a war or natural disaster, there is a dire need for mental health care in many of the communities that MSF serves.

In remote parts of countries like Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where patients often have to walk long distances to get to a hospital, many health centers struggle with a very basic issue—a lack of access to electricity. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams have been coping with this logistical challenge for decades, usually relying on diesel generators. But in DRC´s South Kivu province, MSF teams are finding a cheaper, more effective, and sustainable solution through solar power.
