Due to frequent power outages and rising living expenses in Gaza, Mohammad Awad Allah decided to recycle old oil tin containers and steel scrap to produce wood-burning stoves used for heating and cooking. He sells those handmade stoves at affordable prices given the poor economic reality in Gaza strip inflicted by the Israeli blockade and frequent power outages


-SOUNDBITE (Mohammad Awad Allah- the stove maker)

I use empty Cola cans for laying the base of the stove. I recycle used oil tin containers for producing heating stoves instead of throwing them away. The idea of producing wood-burning stoves out of scrap was initiated due to the power outages crisis. These stoves are used for heating as well as cooking, and they are being sold at affordable prices as citizens are enduring difficult living conditions and many are out of work

– SOUNDBITE ( Khalid  Dabas – a visitor )

Due to the power outages and the appalling living conditions, I resorted to this wood-burning stove for heating and cooking.  It is affordable unlike electric heaters

-SOUNDBITE (Abu Naim- a visitor)

We use the wood-burning stove to cook and to warm up ourselves. It is inexpensive
