Disaster Relief Includes Hot Meals and Purified Water Through Solar Ovens
Global Sun Oven for more than three years for some absolutely delicious meals. But, one of the most outstanding uses for this incredible oven is for feeding hundreds of hungry people during disasters, such as the one just suffered by Haitians. I can't put it better than what Paul Munson, President of Sun Ovens, International, has on his site, so I've simply copied and pasted it for those of you who want to share in helping these unfortunate people.

Help Us Help Haiti
Sun Ovens International has been working in Haiti for the past 11 years. During that time deforestation has increased the need for an alternative to cooking with wood and charcoal. The recent earthquake has intensified the need for solar cooking and water purification. Hundreds of thousands of Haitians are homeless and camps will need to be opened to provide food and shelter for Haiti's Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). Plans are underway to provide Sun Ovens to the IDPs in Haiti. We are partnering with the Friends of Haiti Organization (FOHO) to send as many Sun Ovens as we can to Haiti. On January 28, 2010, FOHO in partnership with Feed My Starving Children will be sending a shipping container with 270,000 meals and Sun Ovens to Port au Prince, Haiti. There is room for additional Sun Ovens to be included with this shipment and additional shipments are being planned.
Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated. Checks should be made payable to:
Friends of Haiti Organization
P. O. Box 222
Holland, OH 43528
(Please note the donation is for the Sun Oven project.)
FOHO is a 501C3 nonprofit prganization so all donations will be tax deductable. 100% of the donation will go directly to sending Sun Ovens to Haiti. No administrative expenses will be deducted. FOHO has been working in Haiti for 45 years and has sent over 1,400 Global Sun Ovens and 12 Villager Sun Ovens to Haiti.
We never know when we'll find ourselves in need of help from others because of natural disasters and/or man-made horrors. I hope you'll be able to find even a few dollars to send to this most worthwhile cause.
