Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade

In the aftermath of the massive earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015, DharmaCrafts launched a project to aid the victims of this tragic disaster. Due to your support of Nepalese artisans and Rebuilding Nepal through Trade, DharmaCrafts was able to donate $12,224.00 to relief efforts. We are very happy that together we were able to benefit the victims of this terrible disaster. A large percentage of the donation went to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center and to the Save the Children Fund.

Although our Nepal initiative has officially ended, we encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.
