SHANGHAI, July 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a leading global PV solar power product manufacturer, today announced that it has donated 5 kW of high efficiency solar panels to a local orphanage and clinic with children affected by HIV/AIDS, through Healthcare Volunteer Uganda ("HVU"), a Uganda-based NGO.
JinkoSolar's solar panels will help to guarantee long-term electricity supplies to HVU's offices, clinics and dormitories. HVU provides patients with comprehensive treatment for HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other diseases. The clinic expects to serve over ten thousand rural villagers in the surrounding area. Before the installation of the solar PV system, the clinic's only source for generating electricity came from costly, polluting and unreliable diesel generators.

"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to make a contribution to this meaningful project and to see that our solar panels have a direct impact on local communities in need."
"It has always been our goal to help those who are in need," said Mr. Ponny Bukenya, Program Coordinator of Healthcare Volunteer Uganda. "We are extremely excited to have received this generous donation from JinkoSolar which will help our patients to receive the treatment they need."
