Dastakar Delhi ( Small Organization)
Heartbreaking that we are back to where we were last year - and worse...
Everyone is struggling but craftspeople, without the reserves to survive another year of no sales and orders, reeling under the impact of lockdowns, sickness and loss, are at breaking point.
The hands that craft things for us are empty - some of the makers are no more.
We hope you can match the generosity you showed last year. Every little helps.

As last year, we will keep you informed of how your money was spent.
