Feizy Donates $15,000 to Nepal Aid Relief
In response to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal, Feizy Rugs is supporting The Global Fund for Children (GFC) with a $15,000 donation, as well as a commitment to provide a portion of the company’ sales through May 15th, in an effort to bolster the organization in bringing critical relief to Nepalese children and their families.
“As rug manufacturers, we have worked for decades with the people of Nepal,” said John Feizy, CEO of Feizy Rugs. “Helping the children of the world to have a better life has always been a focus at Feizy and we recognize that with a disaster like this, those children need our support now more than ever.”
To date, The Global Fund for Children reports they are receiving news of shelter concerns from their grassroots partners in the country. An orphanage served by GFC partner Partnership for Sustainable Development Nepal has sustained structural damage, making it unsafe for the children to go inside. According to Bishnu Bhatta, Partnership for Sustainable Development Nepal’s director, the children of the orphanage have been staying out in the open for the last three days. His organization’s office has also been damaged, and he has been staying outside as well.
“Our grassroots partners in Nepal are on the front lines every day, working with children who were already living under fragile circumstances before the earthquake,” said Susan Goodell, CEO of The Global Fund for Children. “This generous gift from Feizy Rugs ensures that we can help meet their immediate needs and also contribute to their long-term recovery in the wake of this terrible crisis.”
“We are humbled by the enormity of this tragic situation and committed to helping the people of Nepal,” said Mr. Feizy. “In addition to our commitment, we are asking that all of our employees, customers and vendors please donate to help aid in the recovery of this beautiful country.”
