Speaking when he presided over the launch of the  Samsung ethanol energy saving stoves, that will benefit  the over 200,000 refugees at the Kakuma refugee camp, Mr. Sunkuli noted that, the use of ethanol instead of charcoal, will enable the households to benefit from an eco-friendly environment with less smoke, while reducing their fuel costs and pressure on forest cover.
