In Projectsby Brother's Brother Foundation

On June 22nd, 2019, BBF received a donation of $164,000 from the Succop Family Foundation. The donation was designated towards the installation of three solar panel systems in Puerto Rico. BBF’s on-site advisor for the project was Ponce Medical Foundation (PMF), which helped prioritize among several potential hospital locations, and the first of the three solar installations was finalized in September.

The second site, a vaccine clinic, is currently being fitted for solar panel installation. The solar panels at this location will assist with temperature-controlled storage of vaccines during power outages, which is vital to the efficacy of the vaccines.

Due to the partial destruction of the clinic’s roof, the clinic faces significant problems. Without a roof repair the clinic will be unable to install the solar panels, as there are leaks found throughout the building. This clinic will cost only $25,000 for the solar installation, and the roof repair is estimated at $13,200 (details of quote can be found here; please note that they are in Spanish). The $13,200 amount will be taken from the Succop Family Foundation grant and will ensure the safe installation of a clean energy solution for the vaccine clinic.
