Give displaced families in Syria a cleaner, safer way to cook. Your donation will provide a family with a Fire for Life stove from NZ.


Give displaced families in Syria a cleaner, safer way to cook. Your donation to ReliefAid can provide a family with a Fire for Life stove from Escea, a Dunedin, New Zealand-based company.

People in displacement camps rely heavily on open fires to cook meals, but open fires are dangerous, can’t be moved, and create air pollutants that make people ill. Open fires also need a lot of fuel to burn, so families buying firewood are literally seeing their meagre resources going up in smoke.

Thanks to the Kiwi ingenuity and generosity of Escea, displaced families in Syria will get a Fire for Life stove – a practical solution that works in the harshest of environments. The stoves, supplied and manufactured by Escea in New Zealand, are shipped to Syria where ReliefAid’s in-country teams assemble them and use its distribution networks on the ground to distribute them to families in need.

Your donation not only ensures the stoves get to where they are needed most, the more funds we raise, the more families will get their own stoves.

Donate to Fire for Life today and help bring peace of mind to families through the simple act of safe cooking.

I hope this small gift helps you and your family.

This will help 4 families and right now, is so needed. There is snow expected for a week ahead and these people are in the depths of winter. It is wonderful that you felt moved to donate. Thank you
