Muktinath De Cargo
Muktinath De Cargo Pvt Ltd provides consistent, fair, and stable employment to young Nepalis, many of whom come from disadvantaged minority groups in and around the City of Kathmandu. Muktinath is a vital link between the many Fair Trade organizations around the world and their artisans in Nepal. Thankfully, all of the staff at Muktinath are fine after the April 25th earthquake, but some have lost their family members and many have lost homes in the village, particularly those in the region of Sindhupalchowk.
Though many Muktinath staff provided rudimentary assistance from their own pockets, Ganesh Himal Trading recognized that this was not nearly enough to begin to allow for survival, let alone rebuilding and full relief for these villages. Realizing this, GHT wired over $1,000 on June 11th to Muktinath De Cargo Pvt Ltd to be distributed to those who had been the most affected.
As GHT is slowly phased out of this project, CCF will continue to monitor the status and needs of the those at Muktinath and in the Sindhupalchowk region, providing relief as they require.
