Through our SAFE Initiative, the Women's Refugee Commission reduces the vulnerability of displaced women and children to the many harmful consequences associated with the collection and use of cooking fuel—including gender-based violence (GBV) and respiratory illnesses caused by burning firewood and other solid fuels indoors. Our goal is for displaced women, children and families to have safe access to appropriate cooking fuel.
