A MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19
As the outbreak continues to be a global concern, we wanted to reach out and let you know how it is affecting our team and our operations.
In the last 24 hours the Indian government announced a lock-down whereby all non-essential businesses in India must remain closed for the next three weeks with strict police enforcement. Thus, the Shelter is forced to close until April 15th, at the earliest, along with our vendors, markets, and shipping partners.
Supporting our Employees
We are deeply concerned for the well-being of our employees in India. WORK+SHELTER does not have any savings, and thus cannot pay the women if we do not have income. If you can, please consider pre-ordering at a discount or donating to our nonprofit during this time.
Supporting our Clients + Current Orders
In general, we are hitting the pause button on all current orders for the next three weeks. Please assume a 2-3 week delay on deliveries. If we can work from home in India without risking the health of our employees we will. Let's work together to discuss impact, if any, as the situation evolves.
