Courtesy of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Energy Commission of Nigeria (ECN) under the Sustainable Energy for All (Se4All) initiative, the two neighbouring rural communities in Hong Local Government Area of Adamawa State who are still smarting from the effects of an attack last year by the Boko Haram sect, have been given an energy lifeline that is improving health services, providing potable water, illuminating the community and boosting mobile communication.
