Hey Wren Members!

Just a quick update from Clean Cooking Fuel for Refugees this month.

They're putting their newly won €450,000 grant money to good use: they just delivered clean cooking fuel to tens of thousands of refugees, in the Kiryandongo and Lamwo refugee communities in Uganda. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization helped finance this delivery. They will continue to deliver 20kg of briquettes to each refugee family every month.

Also: at the site of their biomass power generator, they recently hosted a bamboo planting ceremony. It was a wonderful moment for the community to get together, and there are some great pictures from the event.
