IMPROVED STOVES SAVE LIVES
Your gift of $150 provides a custom-built cooking stove with proper galvanized pipe ventilation. Trained volunteers will construct the stoves with cement blocks, fire-bricks filled with sand and pumice for insulation. The stoves are far more heat-efficient, reducing firewood use by 50% to 70% and preserving more of the native forests.
Though the stoves might seem rudimentary by modern standards, they are a huge step forward for these deeply grateful Guatemalan families.
