Water boils rapidly on the clean cooking stove
Happy Dad's day. Here is heartwarming news from the ground in Zambia. Last month, along with our partner Greenway Appliances, we launched an innovative project that provides clean cooking stoves to vulnerable families. These stoves have a minimal carbon footprint, are almost smoke free, use less fuel, and cook food faster. The stoves were pre-tested for smoke generation, fuel availability/cost, local recipes, cooking speed, and ease of use before the project was launched.
Goals of this project are to improve the health of families via less smoke inhalation, save money on fuel, and income generation. At present, all families enrolled in our pediatric HIV care program have received these stoves. Recipients love their new stoves as they are smoke free, are easy to use, and families are saving money on fuel bills.
Beneficiaries: 10,000 vulnerable families living in impoverished neighborhoods.
The provision of stoves is in addition to food, medicines and a comprehensive package of life saving health care services provided to 450 HIV+ children and their families enrolled in this program.
Thanks for giving the gift of health to vulnerable families in Zambia.
