Cooking Stove€10 / £8

This gift helps people to stay safe and warm in emergency and crisis situations.

Fuel efficient eco-stoves provide people with warmth and a way to cook food. They also reduce the need for women to venture in search of firewood into areas where they are at risk of attack – which makes them one of the ways we keep women and girls safe after they’ve been forced to flee their homes in an emergency. 

This gift is available as a printed gift card or as a beautifully designed ecard. Simply make your choice during checkout.

Prefer to order by phone? Call 1850 30 40 55 (Republic of Ireland) or 0800 0 30 40 55 (Northern Ireland) between 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

All gifts can also be purchased at your local Oxfam shop.

HOW DOES THIS GIFT HELP?

 
The money raised by this gift will go into our Saving Lives fund, providing what’s needed most in emergency situations around the world, including fuel-efficient stoves.
 
You’ll be helping people like Yang Pal, one of many forced to leave their homes because of conflict in South Sudan. 
 
For cooking, most of the people living in the UN House camp in Juba used ineffective stoves made of coiled metal, which allowed the wind and other elements to react with the fire and consume charcoal at an accelerated rate. Most of the time, one batch of charcoal would finish while preparing only one meal. 
 
To tackle this problem, we distributed fuel efficient stoves to families in the camp to see if an alternative design would ensure that the charcoal is burned economically and efficiently. The response has been very positive. 
 
“Charcoal burns faster with this stove, compared to the one I used to use before,” says Yang. “It saves time, as you don’t have to keep adding charcoal and it saves money because you don’t have to keep buying charcoal after the vouchers [also distributed by Oxfam] have been used.”
