Washable Masks for Tara Abbey
In partnership with Elevate Nepal and the Kokroma Company, Wangchuk Rapten
Lama recently facilitated the gift of new, washable masks for Tara Abbey nuns. Kokroma specializes in traditional infant clothing in Nepal, with a commitment to handicraft and social entrepreneurship.
Since the beginning of the pandemic Kokroma's seamstresses have been working from their homes producing thousands of face masks and newborn baby packs for Nepali mothers in need. With backing from the non-profit Elevate Nepal, Kokroma designed and made masks for nuns and monks which have been gratefully received.
