The earthquake in Nepal has been truly tragic. The loss of life, and even more, the loss of way-of-life for perhaps millions of its people whose villages and homes have been wiped away is hard to fathom. With so much of our production taking place in Nepal, this tragedy has deep significance to Tufenkian. We are thankful to report that we have suffered no loss of human life in our work places, and although our facilities are for the most part undamaged as well, we would like to take this opportunity to help the thousands who were less fortunate.
In order to do some small part to reach out to the people of Nepal, Tufenkian has established matching funds of $15,000 with Mercy Corps, a humanitarian organization with long ties and deep roots in Nepal. If you would like to contribute and take advantage of our matching funds, please go to www.mercycorps.org/people/tufenkianartisancarpets/NepalEarthquake.
Thank you for your support,
