Ship Stoves to Puerto Rico (UCEDD)!

In Sept, 2017 two hurricanes ravaged the island of Puerto Rico leaving communities  devastated and without electrical power or a reliable source for cooking, sanitizing drinking water or cookware. Hurricanes Irma and Maria have left the people of Puerto Rico in a humanitarian crisis. The  University of Oregon University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD), and and Puerto Rico University Center for Excellence in developmental Disabilities/IDD
are partnering with SilverFire to provide portable biomass cook stoves to people with disabilities and their families in Puerto Rico. 


UCEDD and SilverFire are working together with a shared vision to support Americans with disabilities and their families, as well as rural communities in general, that are recovering from the destruction of their neighborhoods

Our goal is to ship at least one pallet of biomass stoves (up to 45 stoves) to the UCEDD community in Puerto Rico within the next 30 days.


SilverFire biomass stoves use minimal fuel, produces less char (bi-products), low emissions, and minimal smoke using dry, quality biomass. 

These innovative, efficient stoves are lightweight, allow for flexible use, and are easy to transport.
SilverFire stoves:

-        are fully assembled, and lightweight (14 lbs.)
-        designed for cooking/boiling water off-grid
          with  renewable free fuel – twigs,  kindling,
           construction debris
-        can be safely used outside, or indoors if emissions
          vented outside through chimney.


 Your generous monetary support will cover the cost of stoves and shipping to the designated destination in Puerto Rico. These stoves are being provided below cost and will be shipped directly to the local UCEDD, Puerto Rico University Center for Excellence in developmental Disabilities/IDD .

Help provide basic cooking, water sanitation and cleaning needs for individuals with disabilities and their families through your donation.
One hundred percent of your donated funds will be used to purchase, ship and set up the stoves. See how these stoves have helped other communities in need, SilverFireHumanitarian .

We appreciate your generous support.  Thank you.

Sincerely, UCEDD & SilverFire
