Put Phebe Hospital on the grid

Beautiful Mothers and Babies Put Phebe Hospital on the grid

The Northeastern Minnesota SWO is working with the Rural Renewable Energy Alliance (RREAL) to bring electricity to Phebe Hospital in Liberia. The synod is attempting to raise $200,000 as a part of a project to offer solar power to Phebe Hospital.

At the Ninth Triennial Convention, voting members were called to support Northeastern Minnesota Synodical Women’s Organization efforts to work with RREAL project and the National Lutheran Church Women Fellowship of Liberia to develop a proposal for providing solar power to the Phebe hospital in Liberia.
