In early June, Sustainable Bolivia’s partner organisation CECAM donated a new prototype of a lage-scale efficient wood-burning stove to the victims of what has been called the worst landslide in recent Bolivian history. More than 1300 families in the Pampahasi area of La Paz lost their homes and belongings in the disaster. The stove is a prototype of new type of institutional wood stove funded by Sustainable Bolivia volunteers and is now being used to cook food and boil water for more than seven families in the area.

The donation to the zone is the first phase of a long-term project to provide the many victims in the area with solar stoves and a source of income. To fund this project, CECAM is raising funds online until the 18th of June.
