Brad Smith, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer, wrote that this helping hand will be spread over approximately 70,000 organizations before the end of 2017, with his company looking to donate around $350 million worth of cloud services to companies before the end of 2016.

This news follows the World Economic Forum at Davos in Switzerland, with experts questioning the global advantages of cloud services if poorer nations cannot access the helpfulness that it brings.
