Fondo Unido de Guatemala, Camas Olympia and Efiforest work together

Fondo Unido de Guatemala, Camas Olympia and Efiforest work together

On October 7, 2011, Fondo Unido de Guatemala in partnership with Camas Olympia and Efiforest, took part in bettering the lives of families in the community of Rancho in El Progreso, Guatemala. The volunteers installed nine wood burning stoves with the purpose of making it safe for the families to continue cooking with an open flame. These safer stoves prevent smoke inhalation and other possible accidents. In addition to installing the new stoves, the volunteers explained to the families how to use and maintain the stoves so that they would last for many years.
