BBOXX has initiated a number of programs in SSA to help citizens economically affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to keep the lights on.
“We exist to solve a major global injustice: energy poverty. Millions of people live without access to affordable or reliable energy. #Covid19 is a major threat to the progress made to date. Our teams around the world are working tirelessly to ensure we keep the lights on for our customers.”
One initiative that the company has introduced in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Togo and Kenya is a crisis energy scheme. If customers pay for one-month energy up front, BBOXX gives them additional days of energy for free.
“Continuity in access to energy is essential and initiatives like these mean customers will have certainty over their vital energy supply,” the company said in a social media post.
