The Power to Heal 2017, Official launch of the solar panel system

Dear friends of The Power To Heal,

It is with great pleasure that we update you on our project The Power To Heal.

As you know, The Power To Heal is a joint effort by Rotary Club Mount Abu, India and our own club in The Hague, to install a solar power system at J Watumull Global Hospital & Research Centre in Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India.

In support of the project we organized our 1st International Fellowship Weekend The Hague, on May 12-14, 2017. With 20 guests from 5 clubs in the UK, Bulgaria and Ethiopia we enjoyed fellowship and special events in and around the city. During the gala dinner on the 13th we welcomed 160 guests from over 20 countries, having a festive time and even a moment of meditation, all in the spirit of The Power To Heal.

Earlier this month (January 2018), the system was officially launched and it is currently fully operational. Not only the system provides clean electricity for the hospital but it also makes J Watumul Global Hospital and Research Center the first hospital in India powered by solar panels.

Here are some pictures from the day of the launch and also a video report from the local media.
