Smokeless Stove: Lucia Xitamul

Lucia Xitamul lives with her husband and their five daughters: Cecilia, Magdalena, María, Liria and Belinda.

She used to cook on an open fire stove on the floor and suffered several eyes infections because of the smoke.

“Now I feel very happy with my new stove, because there is no more smoke inside the kitchen. All my girls and I can make tortillas and cook faster. It saves a lot of wood too,” says Lucía.

About the volunteers, she has a lot of good memories, “they helped my build the stove, took pictures and then explained how should I use the stove,” she continues, “I feel very happy with my stove! Now I keep it clean and take good care of it. Thank you all for your support and the stories you told us.”
