#kitchen meal has just been cooked on this cookstove, ugali and fish broth, typical for this fishing community. People here often do not know about dangers of #indoorairpollution. Indoor air pollution – generated largely by inefficient and poorly ventilated stoves burning biomass fuels such as wood, crop waste and dung, or coal – is responsible for the deaths of an estimated 1.6 million people annually. More than half of these deaths occur among children under five years of age. In developing countries with high mortality rates overall, indoor air pollution ranks fourth in terms of the risk factors that contribute to disease and death.
