"But, from his suburban home, one Maryland teen has dedicated himself to making life a little safer for those women."

"The United Nations estimates that 300,000 people have been slaughtered in the ongoing violence in the north African country. Countless others have been forced out of their homes and are living in refugee camps."

"Spencer Brodsky, 17, learned about the violence and decided to raise money to purchase fuel-efficient stoves to send to Darfur. The stoves burn 75 percent less firewood."

"Brodsky reasons that if he can do something to keep Sudanese women in the camps, this would decrease the likelihood of violence."

"Brodsky, who is Jewish, said his elders have compared the genocide in Darfur to the Holocaust. He believes that his peers should not stand for such injustice in their lifetime."

"They always taught about what was happening in that region in that the social injustice that's happening. And how you know how people said during the Holocaust during World War II — you know this can never happen again."

"At $30 per stove, Brodsky has raised enough money to ship 420 stoves to Darfur."

"Naila Mohamed, leader of the stoves project at CHF International, has witnessed the reaction of Sudanese women when they receive the stoves."

"These women are so grateful for this initiative and actually thankful to the American people who are so passionate to let these women know that there is help out there," Mohamed said.

"Together, Brodsky and CHF International want to continue raising awareness around the world of the plight of the Sudanese."
