Safe, Energy Efficient Cookstoves in Guatemala

by Hunger Relief International
Feb 18, 2014

Continuing the Momentum

In 2013, HRI's safe and energy efficient cookstoves proved to be a huge success in Guatemala. As a result of 45 new stoves constructed, more than 400 people now reside in safer homes with greatly improved air quality. Your support for these stoves continues to reduce the rate of chronic respiratory illness, burns, and environmental degradation, while also positively impacting family finances and nutrition.

In this new year we are continuing the positive momentum of our clean cookstove intiative. We have 47 new stoves slated to be built in the first six months of 2014, reaching even more children and families in need. We hope you will continue to support this project and spread the word about the many ways clean cookstoves are positively impacting the health and well-being of children and families.
