Camel Carried Refrigeration!

To help deliver medicine to Africa’s Sahel region, a desert belt spanning the ENTIRE continent, clinic workers have enlisted the aid of SOLAR powered camels, like that one!

Actually, the camel isn’t solar powered, but the REFRIGERATOR on its back is. It keeps precious vaccines safe from the heat while traveling through the desert.

Once the camel reaches its destination, the solar panels can be joined with other panels to POWER the clinic. Turning hot to cold AND saving people’s lives, brilliant!
