Nepal Needs Our Support

On April 25, a massive 7.8 earthquake rocked the fragile nation of Nepal, leaving much of historic Kathmandu in rubble and shattering many thousands of lives.


The earthquake is the worst to have struck Nepal in 80 years. Survivors have little refuge, as the earthquake struck in a densely populated area where many people live in already-precarious conditions. They have few resources to survive and recover without our help.


With extensive facilities in Nepal, our parent company – Tufenkian Carpets – has consistently sought to give back to the rich land and industrious people of this small country.


We can help these courageous people by making a donation to Mercy Corps' Nepal Earthquake Response Fund. With long ties and deep roots in Nepal, Mercy Corps is responding to urgent needs in the hardest-hit areas, and our gifts will deliver the lifesaving relief and resources families need to recover in the days ahead.


Our generosity can help save lives and strengthen the people’s determination to rebuild their communities. The Tufenkian Foundation has agreed to match donations up to $15,000.00. At this moment, the total raised has exceeded $19,000. We thank our friends, colleagues, and supporters for joining us in this effort.

 If you would like to contribute and take advantage of these matching funds, please press the following link

 

In addition, we are teaming with our largest partner in Nepal to support those affected most tragically by the earthquake and its aftermath, according to the needs they discover and which are most moving to them.


Please join us in support of our friends, co-workers and their families during this crisis. Thank you for your compassion to those in need.
