Malian refugees in Burkina Faso get solar cookers

Report
Caritas

Food and water are not always abundant in the Sahel region. But one thing that is, is sunshine.

Caritas has been helping communities in Mentao refugee camp, Burkina Faso, make the most of the region’s scorching heat by providing Malian refugees with solar cookers.

They look like upturned satellite dishes but are incredibly useful in an area where gathering firewood can cause deforestation and problems with the local people over the depletion of resources.

Réfugiés maliens au Burkina Faso reçoivent cuisinières solaires

Report
Caritas

L’eau et la nourriture ne sont pas toujours abondantes dans la région du Sahel. Mais une chose l’est : c’est le soleil.

Caritas aide les communautés dans le camp de réfugiés de Mentao, au Burkina Faso, à tirer au maximum profit de la chaleur torride de la région en fournissant aux réfugiés maliens des cuisinières solaires.

Elles ressemblent à des antennes paraboliques retournées, mais sont extrêmement utiles dans les zones où la collecte de bois pourrait provoquer la déforestation, ou même des problèmes avec la population locale, à cause de l’épuisement des ressources.
