Lightning causes deaths and injuries across Africa, devastating families and communities.
Lightning kills livestock, still a measure of family wealth in many African countries.
Lightning causes direct damage to utility infrastructure, industry, communications systems, and mining in remote areas of countries that are already economically challenged.
