Household pollution from the smoke of indoor cooking fires
causes and/or aggravates lung cancer, laryngeal cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tuberculosis, cataracts, and other illnesses. For children under five, contact with smoke significantly increases cases of pneumonia and lower respiratory infections. One of our most important projects is the provision of vented eco-stoves that remove these pollutants from the home or cooking area, while also significantly reducing the amount of firewood needed. Not only do these stoves improve health, they also improve the economic condition of families. Only $180 will provide one of these life saving stoves that are manufactured locally. Beneficiaries help to cover the cost of transportation.
