The Aid by Trade Foundation on the current COVID-19 pandemic | Together strong and in solidarity through the crisis
The COVID-19 pandemic also affects us, the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF). Until further notice, we do not travel to our project areas in China or to the textile production markets around the world to protect the health of our employees, partners and customers. We have shifted our daily work to home office and continue to work and connect virtually with all our colleagues and stakeholders. This way we ensure that our work for the protection of the cashmere goats and the conservation of our nature can continue. With the measures we have introduced, we are following the advice of the German Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO). We are observing current developments very closely and are in regular contact with our partners along the textile value chain in order to act together now and in the future in a sustainable, effective and responsible manner.
All the more reason for us to appeal to your solidarity, which is more in demand today than ever. When shopping, show solidarity with the people behind our textiles, the animals that provide the raw material for our clothing, and nature, whose preservation we urgently need to ensure. You can still contact us by phone or e-mail directly to the well-known colleagues or simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
