    That twinge in your intestines
    Got a few shekels rattling around and looking for a worthy charity? This one is excellent, and the work they do is extremely important. Yet, you have probably never heard of them.

    Disease and injuries resulting from smoke inhalation are a major cause of death for women and children in developing areas of the world. Not only do the technologies advanced by Aprovecho reduce particulate emissions from cooking fires, but they are more economical. You might not think of it, but there are large numbers of people in our world who are forced by economic circumstances to choose, on a daily basis, between purchasing food and purchasing fuel to cook it. Aprovecho's cooking stoves make a huge contribution to nutrition by allowing people to spend less money on fuel, thereby leaving more in the family budget for food.
