UPDATE (5th June 2020): India is being unlocked on June 7th and Nepal have started weaving again.
Jenny Jones is raising money for the weavers in India and Nepal who have been drastically affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
Weavers are paid by the square meter for what that they weave in their villages so constant work is crucial. They have no access to social welfare during this difficult time and the proceeds from donations have already fed more than 200 families for a month.

The details of the food parcels are listed below. Any donation that could help supply a food parcel would be greatly appreciated.
Once the food parcels have been delivered to the families we will send you photos of the weavers and parcels so can see how much your support has helped.
