Through purchasing Fairly-traded goods, we can all offer hope to those who seek to find economic stability where they are, rather than chase the perceived economic well-being elsewhere. The good news is that Fairtrade has expanded and continues to do so, with the original range of food items now being added to, with flowers, furniture, clothing and crafts.
We express our thanks for the vision of those who developed the idea of supporting workers, enabling them to trade their way out of poverty. We pray for those who continue this idea to bring justice to all who trade. Thanks for doing your bit.
