Your towers can save lives


Cell sites located beyond the electricity grid uniquely positioned to complete the vaccine ‘cold chain’

Millions of children die every year from readily preventable diseases. Energize the Chain would like to use your towers to prevent many of those unnecessary deaths. How? In order to be effective, vaccines need to be kept cool, and using refrigerators powered and connected to monitoring systems by your cell towers would be a great way to complete the ‘cold chain.’ Econet is already saving children’s lives by doing this in Zimbabwe, and American Tower will add fridges to 85 cell sites in Ghana. This isn’t just a great corporate social responsibility and community relations opportunity for MNOs and towercos, it’s an ethical obligation for all tower owners to give this opportunity appropriate consideration.
