From fires stoked to children’s heads stroked, thirst ridden treks for clean water, and finding the courage to fight for survival at every turn – women in South Asia’s slums and rural corners are facing a whole new set of challenges.
From trying to keep their children’s hands clean without a trickle of safe water to not having access to base supplies like sanitary towels and hand sanitizer, no route to medical care, and not even a mask - even in the darkest days, these mothers can be a light for their little ones. A soft lullaby for sleep and the comfort of close arms, love can be found in abundance but food and all that is needed for survival can be scarce.
How Himalayan Trading Co. Gives
Together, let’s carry the weight.
While it can be overwhelming to know where to start, we are reminded that the smallest action can make a difference and we have power within our purchasing decisions. With every Himalayan Trading Co. purchase, 10% is shared with Sevachild to deliver ration packs, food, and necessities to families in some of South Asia’s hardest hit areas.
Food to share around the table, sanitizer to keep small hands sweet, the dance of needle and thread as women make face masks for their family, the dignity of sanitary towels, and the sigh of relief that care is coming. A little humanity goes a long way.
