  • December 2012: War weary citizens in Iraq to receive solar cookers - During a recent visit to villages in the Najaf-Karbala region of Iraq, a trustee of The Lady Fatemah Trust found that villagers were using two methods for cooking: The majority of families, living in abject poverty, use open fuelwood fires for cooking, heating and lighting, while a slightly more affluent minority uses appliances fueled by kerosene. In the first phase of this project, LFT intends to provide families living in the villages surrounding Karbala: Barakat al-Zahra district, Al-Mahdiyeh Village One and Two, the al-Nedhal and al-Wala’ neighborhoods, as well as to families living on isolated desert farms with solar cookers. About 7000 solar panel cookers will be needed to provide every family in the region with a cooker. The cookers are an improved version of the standard Cookit solar cooker. They made from plastic fluteboard, and are being manufactured by Matthew Rollins. The cost of each cooker will be £15, including transportation and administrative expenses. Total project cost will therefore amount to £105,000.00. More information...
