Even in cities, charcoal and firewood is still used for cooking by many families. In apartment blocks, cooking may be done on balconies and in staircases, rather than in the kitchens, which usually have poor ventilation and inappropriate flooring and fittings for open fires.

In many houses, the kitchen and living area have been arranged in such a way that they are a woman's place.
