Read all about it

The artisans face life below the poverty line since the COVID-19 outbreak. Many Bengal rely on their income on a piece by piece or daily rate basis. Since the outbreak, many European buyers cancelled their production orders causing many workshops to close down. To make things worse the authorities of Bangladesh ordered a total lockdown since the 25th of March. Many workshops do not have the funds to support their flexible staff and with the country lacking a proper social security system many day labourers are on their own. The pan epidemic turns into a personal disaster for many artisans and their families.
