With millions of people forced by drought, famine and war into desert refugee and displaced person camps, the need for a cheap, durable solar cooker that will allow people to cook with sunlight during the day and save their scarce wood for use at night and on cloudy days, has become urgent and critical. This video outlines the durability issues of current solar cookers used in desert refugee camps and shows some of the research that has been conducted by volunteers around the world. Funding is needed to move this effort forward and help these women and children who must walk miles to find wood, but have easy access to abundant, free sunlight for cooking and boiling water.
