Fair trade co-op manager on Nepal earthquake recovery
The United Nations says that an estimated eight million people, more than a quarter of the country’s population, have been affected by the earthquake that struck last weekend. Search and rescue efforts continue as many people continue to sleep in the streets of Kathmandu, afraid to return to their homes. We’ll check in with Sunil Chitrakar, the CEO of Mahaguthi Craft With Conscience, a fair trade organization based in Kathmandu. They work with the Chicago based Mata Traders, a fair trade organization that supports women in India and Nepal.
