Humanitarian action 2024

Despite the difficulties and the economic slowdown that we are all feeling, we continue to strive towards a fairer world, by sharing our resources.

This year we are supporting the fight against precariousness in India and Nepal. It's via the humanitarian association Karuna Shechen, founded in 2000 by Matthieu Ricard that we act. We chose this organization for its low operating costs and its targeted field actions.

In May 2024, we made a donation of €1000 to support this humanitarian organization.

The different Humanitarian Actions

Health and hygiene

Save lives, alleviate suffering and preserve the health of the most vulnerable. In India as in Nepal, the regions in which we operate are faced with significant lack of access to care, both materially, geographically and financially.

About the author:

A lifelong travel enthusiast, I have been traveling through Asia for 30 years. My favorite countries are wonderful Nepal, India where everything is possible, and Thailand for its sweetness. The common thread of my travels has always been people, hence the importance of combining craftsmanship and fair trade, plus humanitarian actions. Why I chose jewelry.... well because my father was a jewelry designer himself and I grew up surrounded by turquoise, tiger's eye and a thousand other natural stones.
