The Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT) has been working to distribute Rocket stoves, donated by Trees, Water & People (TWP), to internally displaced Haitians. These energy-efficient, low-cost cookstoves are used by displaced Haitians for cooking as well as boiling contaminated water. AMURT has helped with distribution of hundreds of stoves as well as the training for proper stove use and maintenance.
TWP’s Assistant International Director Sebastian Africano and TWP representative Claudia Menendez will be traveling to Haiti within the next couple of weeks to distribute another 2,688 stoves.
TWP has a goal of distributing 100,000 more fuel-efficient cookstoves throughout Haiti over the next seven years as well as setting up a manufacturing process within the country.
