Solar Powered Drug Carrying Camel

Getting medicines and drugs out to people in the arid Sahel region of Africa has always been difficult. A smart team of designers and health care professionals has built a way to get drugs and vaccines that need to be refrigerated out to people who live far from cities and towns by hooking up a solar powered fridge to the top of a camel. The fridge has a battery pack to store energy for those nights and the 5 minutes per year when it’s raining there. This lifesaving device will bring healthcare to nomadic people.
