“Inhaling this dirty air is slowly killing people – often women and children in the case of indoor cooking. I saw this first-hand in the Maasai village, and was so pleased to be able to contribute clean cookstoves for all the huts in their village. I want to do whatever I can to make our air cleaner by working with UN Environment to inspire action to address this crisis.”  said Ellie Goulding
