The vision behind the stove installation project is to see healing and restoration through community development. Many families cook over an open fire, putting women and children at risk of getting burned. The smoke produced by these fires damages the lungs of those within close proximity of the cooking site. We seek to install stoves in the homes of families with whom we have relationship, to provide a personal element that opens the door for evangelism and discipleship.
During house visits with local families, we realized they did not use clean water when cooking or drinking. Children complained of upset stomachs which was a result of drinking unfiltered water. Clean water costs money and is not easily accessible. We now help provide families in need with clean water.
