Stichting Vluchteling (The Refugee Foundation) in the Netherlands provides emergency aid worldwide to people. They teamed up with the Vajra Foundation Holland to distribute solar cookers in the Nepalese refugee camps. The project in Nepal is financed by the Dutch Postcode Lottery, which has been supporting United Nations High Commission for Refuges (UNHCR) work worldwide since 2002. Stichting Vluchteling worked with the Vajra Foundation to develop the cookers, which are now being largely produced in Nepal. UNHCR and people involved in the project hope it can be extended to refugee camps in other countries.
