Improving the Health of Communities with BioStoves
New Vision Guatemala continues its works and efforts to install BioStoves in the community of Santa Rosita. Families here, traditional cook over open fires in their homes. This exposes them to smoke and carbon monoxide poisoning on a regular basis. Because of this practice, their health are greatly compromised.
The BioStoves we have installed take into consideration cultural and traditional needs but also greatly reduces their exposure to toxins. Estufa Chispa stoves come with a chimney, but are also more efficient by requiring the use of less wood.
