Ms Roberts will help bring attention to one of the most urgent health problems facing women and families around the world – deadly smoke from inefficient cookstoves and open fires – after learning about the Alliance while interviewing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a special feature on Extraordinary Moms” which aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network on 7 May.   Nearly 2 million people around the world – mostly women and children – die each year from an activity that many of us take for granted: cooking for our families,” Roberts said. I am proud to stand with Secretary Clinton to work to reduce the senseless and preventable deaths from unsafe cooking conditions in developing countries and I look forward to contributing to the important work of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.”   Launched in 2010 at the Clinton Global Initiative forum, the Alliance is a public-private partnership that seeks to mobilise $250 million to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women and combat climate change by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.   Today, nearly half the world's population – close to 3 billion people – will eat meals cooked over fires that use charcoal, wood, or even animal waste for fuel,” said United Nations Foundation President Timothy E. Wirth.  A year from now, 1.9 million of those people will be dead.  Their death certificates will cite pneumonia or lung cancer, but the underlying cause is exposure to cooking smoke.  Unsafe cooking conditions are the fifth greatest threat to health in poor developing countries, yet nobody knows about it.  The needed resources cannot be mobilised to confront this crisis if the world community doesn't recognise it as such.  Thanks to Julia Roberts, and others who will follow her lead, that task just got a little easier.”   Learn more about Shell Foundations approach to tackling Indoor Air Pollution www.shellfoundation.org/pages/core_lines.php?p=corelines_content&page=breathinghere.

Julia Roberts Joins International Effort Promoting Clean, Safe and Efficient Cookstoves

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a multi-stakeholder partnership co-founded by the UN Foundation and Shell Foundation, has announced that Academy Award winning actress Julia Roberts will serve as its Global Ambassador.


Ms Roberts will help bring attention to one of the most urgent health problems facing women and families around the world – deadly smoke from inefficient cookstoves and open fires – after learning about the Alliance while interviewing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a special feature on “Extraordinary Moms” which aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network on 7 May.
 
“Nearly 2 million people around the world – mostly women and children – die each year from an activity that many of us take for granted: cooking for our families,” Roberts said. “I am proud to stand with Secretary Clinton to work to reduce the senseless and preventable deaths from unsafe cooking conditions in developing countries and I look forward to contributing to the important work of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.”
 
Launched in 2010 at the Clinton Global Initiative forum, the Alliance is a public-private partnership that seeks to mobilise $250 million to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women and combat climate change by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.
 
“Today, nearly half the world's population – close to 3 billion people – will eat meals cooked over fires that use charcoal, wood, or even animal waste for fuel,” said United Nations Foundation President Timothy E. Wirth. 

“A year from now, 1.9 million of those people will be dead.  Their death certificates will cite pneumonia or lung cancer, but the underlying cause is exposure to cooking smoke.  Unsafe cooking conditions are the fifth greatest threat to health in poor developing countries, yet nobody knows about it.  The needed resources cannot be mobilised to confront this crisis if the world community doesn't recognise it as such.  Thanks to Julia Roberts, and others who will follow her lead, that task just got a little easier.”
