Electricity Shortage in Africa: A Growing Concern
Africa continues to face a daunting challenge of consistent and stable electricity supply, particularly people living in rural areas. The issue has had adverse effects on general development.
This deplorable state of electricity supply and infrastructures in the rural areas breeds an urgent call for corporate interventions and charitable donations which Bluetti has championed to put smiles on the faces of Africans.
