The Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) and Partners In Health (PIH) announce that Grammy-winning reggae band Steel Pulse will donate all proceeds from their new song Hold on [4 Haiti] to the solar electrification of PIH clinics in Haiti.

Hold On [4 Haiti] was written by lead singer David Hinds immediately after the January 12th quake that devastated Haiti. “We wanted to make a difference on the ground,” explains Hinds. “That’s why we did this song with the Solar Electric Light Fund and Partners In Health.”

The Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF) and Partners In Health (PIH) have been working together since 2006 to bring solar power to PIH operations around the world. In response to the devastating earthquake in Port-au-Prince, SELF is accelerating its work to power health clinics in Haiti with its partner on the ground, Partners In Health (PIH).

Steel Pulse, the Grammy-winning, legendary reggae band, joins hands with SELF and PIH to make a difference in Haiti. All funds raised by Hold On [4 Haiti] will go towards the Solar Health Care Partnership between SELF and PIH.

The work of SELF and PIH has been previously mentioned on Green Antilles: Solar power in post-earthquake Haiti.
