IMG_0259

To cap off an amazing week at the Social Good Summit, The UN Foundation’s Alliance for Clean Cookstoves held an afternoon conference to discuss in-home air pollution, clean cookstoves and the millions of women who die every year from breathing in fumes from the open fires they maintain to provide food for their families. Hillary Clinton, who has been a supporter of this issue for many years formally announced her board membership to Cookstoves.

Mrs. Clinton spoke about traveling the world as Secretary of State and being invited by women around the world into their homes and barely being able to breath once she entered due to the smoke from the cooking fires there. http://www.cleancookstoves.org
