Over 70 labour rights groups and trade unions have signed up to a joint statement calling on global clothing brands that source from Bangladesh to pay into the Rana Plaza Donor Trust Fund and ensure the survivors and families of victims of the devastating collapse receive the much needed support they need.
 
Clean Clothes Campaign were joined in signing the statement by over 30 Bangladeshi organisations, 21 Canadian groups and global trade union federations IndustriALL and UNI as well as organisations from across Asia, Europe and the USA.
 
April 24th will be the first anniversary of the collapse of Rana Plaza which killed 1,138 garment workers and injured over 2,000 more. US$40 million is needed to ensure all those affected receive the support for loss of income and medical expenses they require. 
 
To date, seven brands have publicly committed funds to the Donor Trust Fund - El Corte Ingles, Mascot, Mango, Inditex, Loblaw, Bonmarche and Camaieu.   All brands linked to Rana Plaza and Bangladesh should pay into the Donor Trust Fund immediately in order to ensure that much needed payments can be made.
