Legrand supports the action of the humanitarian organization Electriciens sans frontières in the countries of the Horn of the Africa
The countries of the Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia) are currently experiencing one of the most serious food crises ever. More than 12 million people are affected and in urgent need of relief. Humanitarian organization Electriciens Sans Frontières is involved in the electrification of refugee camps in Somalia, and in the context of its partnership with ESF, Legrand is providing the electric equipment required. A first delivery took place just this week.
Managed by Médecins sans frontières and Action contre la faim, the refugee camps will provide basic emergency facilities including shelter, medical care and food distribution.
