Fuel Efficient Stove

Fuel Efficient Stove

$100.00


Description

Cooking over open, indoor fires with exposure to wood smoke can be harmful to eyes and lungs. Fuel efficient stoves vent the smoke safely and also use less firewood, so they’re better for health and for the environment! They also help families save money on gas or extra firewood and allow for quicker cooking time.

“We can’t afford gas, so this is a good option for us. We don’t have any issues with smoke in our house now.” Langar, from Sindh Province, Pakistan.

How your gift helps

Can a stove be beautiful? We think Langar’s is. With support from our partner SSEWA-Pak in Pakistan, Langar and her husband Mana Ram have constructed a fuel-efficient stove, which has made a helpful difference to their daily life. Not only is the stove cheaper to run and better for the environment, but less smoke in the house makes for healthier lungs too.

With four sons to feed, Langar does a lot of cooking. She says this stove is twice as efficient as her previous one, enabling her to cook both bread and tea in the morning before everyone goes off to work – saving time!

Langar says: “We can’t afford gas, so this is a good option for us. We don’t have any issues with smoke in our house now.”

SSEWA-Pak is providing training and helping people like Langar and Mana Ram access 1000 stoves like this one.

Your gift of a Fuel Efficient Stove is contributing to projects like this one and making a difference in the lives of those facing poverty and marginalisation.
