Solar Cookers provide dignity and sustenance in Darfur refugee camp

Story from, full URL:

The Touloum refugee camp houses more than 20,000 Darfur refugees, mainly women and children. The area is devoid of vegetation, yet there is abundant sun with rainfall of between 3” and 5” (7.5 - 12.5 cm) yearly.

After setting up a large solar cooking project in the Iridimi refugee camp in Chad for Darfur refugees, the KoZon Foundation and Jewish World Watch began construction of a manufacturing plant and store room in the Touloum refugee camp in March of 2007 with a scheduled completion date of May 2007. Solar cooker training is scheduled to begin in Touloum in June of 2007.

The benefits of solar cooking for the refugees in this camp:

Solar cooking can reduce the need for frequent firewood collection reducing the risk of violence towards women and girls.

Two solar cookers can save one ton of wood each year.

There is no need to tend a fire so women are free to do other tasks.

The production of the solar cookers provides income generation opportunities for female refugees.

What you can do:

Help us provide the Iridimi and Touloum camps with solar cookers by raising awareness and raising money.

Host an event with an engaging Jewish World Watch speaker at your home, work, Parent Association, library, synagogue or church to learn more about the genocide in Darfur.

Organize a fundraiser to help bring solar cookers to these women. Ideas: BBQ, bake sale, car wash, dinner or theatre party.

Make a donation: A $30 donation supports one family by providing two solar cookers, training and two pot holders. A $150 donation supports five families by providing ten solar cookers, training and ten pot holders and so on.
