Dear all donor of cooking stove for flood vicitms in Pakistan,
New Year 2012 Greetings from AHD Pakistan!
We are happy to share our quarterly report and the progress about cooking stoves construction in flood affected areas, our AHD project team facilitated and helped poor rural families in construction of 500 new cooking stoves in their household level. Please find below the case study
Case Study of Mrs Maya Jitu
Mrs. Maya Jitu age 50 years resident of village Nodhani. The village has 60 families and they are using traditional stoves for cooking. The Health of village women has been affected from major problems as smoke has affected the eyes of the women and even some women have developed the Asthma problem. The traditional stoves have got no chimney and proper space for exhaustion of smoke. Since AHD introduced their (FES) fuel efficient smoke less stoves, health of village women is improving because this stove have chimney and consumes less woods two stoves at the same time can be operated, time consumption also reduces and the major point of this is that the fire hazard in their house hold has declined.
Mrs. Maya’s thanks:
I am personally very thankfully to AHD staff for introducing this stove to us and making us aware of benefits and being a village woman I will try to continue this process and train other village women as well.
