Air Pollution

Air pollution kills 7 million people worldwide every year. WHO (World Health Organisation) data shows that 9 out of 10 people breathe air that exceeds WHO guideline limits containing high levels of pollutants, with low – and middle-income countries suffering from the highest exposures.

WHO reports that exposure to indoor air pollutants can lead to a wide range of adverse health outcomes in children and adults, from respiratory illnesses to cancer to eye problems. Members of households that rely on polluting fuels and devices also suffer a higher risk of burns, poisonings, musculoskeletal injuries and accidents. Burning fuels such as dung, wood and coal in inefficient stoves or open hearths produce a variety of health-damaging pollutants, including particulate matter (PM), methane, carbon monoxide, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and volatile organic compounds (VOC). Burning kerosene in simple wick lamps also produces significant emissions of fine particles and other pollutants.

As an environmental charity, we believe it is crucial to address air pollution effectively. We work to mobilize cities and individuals to protect our health and planet from the effects of air pollution.
