Over the years our medical providers have treated thousands of patients with asthma and respiratory illness. In researching root causes, we realized the traditional practice of cooking food over open fires inside humble abodes was a primary concern for health and wellness. With a focus on sustainability, we partnered with a small group that makes the Coci-Nica, a rocket stove that reduces smoke emissions up to 70%. In addition, our teams worked with locals to build outdoor kitchenettes that would house the Coci-Nica. The results have been amazing! Health has improved and hundreds of people are breathing easy.
