STOVE DISTRIBUTION / CONSTRUCTION
Project  completed three months of  first cooking stove distribution for flood victims of MALTI, lower sindh ,Pakistan.
The study was successful and the stove had a very positive impact on the quality of life of rural women with the data showing that there would be large health gains as well. Women also saved time, both in the time needed to cook and the time needed to collect fuel wood. Normally women spend almost the whole day for collecting fuel wood but now they can save their time, energy and wood by using these simple and easy to use stoves. In total with a combination of 233 families benefitted from this distribution.

The number of households using fuel efficient stoves in the flood effected villages of lower sindh in year 2012 will be increased by 3000, during which 233 stoves total were placed in Malti area. We have actually set a goal above this, which is to try to get 4000 stoves into different villages by the end of year 2013.

The household members were very happy about the stove and they told us how much difference it would make for them and all their family. After we completed the distribution for the 233 stoves we called the previous 130 stove beneficiaries using the rural committee members and asked them about their experiences of using this fuel efficient stove.

Mr. Allah Ditta says, “My wife is much more happy and healthier now as it not just saves her time but also has reduced harmful effects on her health that she was going through due to the previous stoves they had at home, I would like to thank AHD for making our lives healthier and better”.

Traditional stoves have lots of problems in which bulk usage of wood, environmentally also good due to it didn’t have any kind of smoke exhaustion, so the village women suffered from number of diseases like Asthma, Eye sore, Lungs and respiratory infection, and most important the house wife of village families on risk due to fire hazard because of traditional stoves model haven’t covered.

NADI FILTER DISTRIBUTION

Report

The Water Filters were constructed in the flood affected village of lower sindh, Malti, Pakistan. Almost 123 families benefitted from these water purifying Nadi filters.

The number of households using Nadi filters in the flood effected villages of lower Sindh in year 2012 will be increased by 10,000, during which 123 Nadi filters have already been constructed and successfully running  in Malti area. We have actually set a goal above this, which is to try to get 12,000 Nadi filters into different villages by the end of year 2013.

The household members were very happy with Nadi filters and they told us how much difference it has already created in their lives. After we completed the construction for the 123 Nadi filters we called the beneficiaries using the rural committee members and asked them about their experience of Nadi filter so far.

Mrs. Shafique says, “ Me and my children were suffering from many diseases like diherea and other stomatch problems due to contaminates water usage, we are poor people who cant afford filter and other purifying material, AHD by bringing this household simple Nadi filter which id made of mud and is very easy to use and construct has made our lives easier and much more safer, now I am not worried about my family and specially children health, God bless AHD and your supporters”.
