Yiben is located in Koinadugu District; has no road access and is half a day’s travel to the nearest town of Fadugu. Vaccines are currently brought in as needed by foot, boat or bike so winning the Dulas solar powered refrigerator will enable the clinic to store their life-saving vaccines locally.

Mallam the coordinator and manager of the health project said “Yiben and surrounding area are some of the most remote and deprived communities in Sierra Leone. A fridge in Yiben will save many lives, and without it, essential medicines would spoil”

The VC30SDD refrigerator has a capacity of 25.5 litres and is the smallest in the Dulas range of Solar Direct Drive (SDD) Vaccine Refrigerators.

It’s the perfect product for this remote clinic as its compact size means that it is easily transportable. The VC30SDD has an autonomy time of over 72 hours, keeping vaccines safe and alleviating functionality concerns through rainy or dull periods.


Drawing on over three decades of experience in the solar refrigeration industry, the Dulas range of Solar Direct Drive refrigerators are designed to be the most reliable vaccine storage solution available on the market today.

Guy Watson, Head of Solar International Operations at Dulas said “We are happy to donate the vaccine refrigerator to the community of Yiben and support Set4Life Australia’s work which provides better health services for women and children”.
