Oscar Isberian Rugs is proud to continue its support of CARE & FAIR, an organization that fights for better living and treatment of weavers in the industry and aggressively fights against illegal child labor in India, Nepal, and Pakistan. Oscar and I recently visited CARE & FAIR during our visit to the Domotex Carpet Fair in Hanover Germany. One of their recent projects is the construction of a large school with library and doctor’s office in the village of Vern (Lahore area) in Pakistan. Our friend, Mr. Khalid Sheikh of Lahore Carpets (one of the largest manufactures of handmade rugs in Pakistan) shared the details of this exciting development. The Vern school houses over 700 students with staff member and teachers. Please visit http://care-fair.org/ for more information about this great organization.
