“I feel really happy and grateful with my new stove!”, begins Dina. “The old one was broken and the smoke was getting inside the room.”
Dina and her husband live with their three children, Kevin (14), Emely (9) and Cristian (3), in a community in the department of Chimaltenango. They partnered with Habitat Guatemala to obtain a smokeless stove, which is designed to use significantly less wood than most stoves families have access to, which saves money, time, and resources.
Dina concludes with a message to the volunteers: “I am so thankful to God and the volunteers who supported me by assembling my new stove, now I keep it really clean and take good care of it”.
