While we reopen in the US and the UK, the situation on the ground in India and Nepal is growing increasingly dire. Between the rapidly spreading virus, the lockdowns, the overflowing hospitals, and the lack of financial security; a growing community of people across the subcontinent are in need of extra support to survive the pandemic. We have kept in touch with many of our artisan friends and charitable partners. We have also donated to those who are providing community support. However, those in need are quickly overwhelming those providing support. If you can afford to do so, donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Even the smallest amount can help provide a meal or a lifesaving vaccine.
Here are suggested places to donate if you can which are providing outreach in their communities:
Local Women’s Handicrafts (Empowerment Collective), Kathmandu Nepal – Providing meals to anyone who needs them in Kathmandu
Sheroes Café, Agra India – Providing meals to those need them in Agra
Tara Homes, Delhi India – Transformed residential homes into makeshift hospitals & providing community support in their day centers.
Project Sunshine, Delhi India – Providing meals and hygiene materials to their community
Dalit Goods Co, Across India – Supporting hospitals and providing vaccine outreach throughout India. Coordinating a global prayer network.
Friendicoes, Delhi India – Supporting abandoned animals throughout Delhi, providing healthcare to street dogs, cats, and large animals in their sanctuary.
