She says the kids are especially becoming accustomed to the change and her son says it often, “Mama there isn’t smoke.”
She says it saves a lot of wood and now she can cook multiple items at once—”before I would cook my tamale, atoll, tortillas. Now I can cook it all on one fire because there are three burners”.
To the volunteers who came to build, Rosa Marina is grateful, she has the photo the left with her and sends this message to the group, “thank you for helping us. When you started to construct I could see you were beautiful people in the way you were hardworking. I’m so grateful for the stove because now the smoke doesn’t affect us. It has helped us a lot. I hope that God will bless and watch over you—thank you.”
