Ten Thousand Villages and Flooding in Pakistan

Some of you may have purchased gift items and decorative items from Ten Thousand Villages either online or in one of their stores in the U.S. and Canada. Here is a special opportunity to help the villagers of Pakistan who are rug makers for Ten Thousand Villages, a fair trade company. Fair wages and opportunity for training, health care and other benefits are given to the Bunyaad people who make these rugs, but their livelihoods are threatened now by the massive damage done by the recent flooding in Pakistan. Look here to see the tent villages they are now living in and the results of the devastation of the floods. There is an opportunity to donate to the restoration of this needy part of the world.  Click on: Tenthousandvillages
