Buying Fairtrade

When we come together we can change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves - the Fairtrade movement is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities for Fairtrade. Your actions help shoppers to make choices that change the lives of farmers and workers. ***** Fantastic news: @coopuk have announced 28th February they will buy all the cocoa for their products #Fairtrade. *****

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has decided to launch an appeal for Yemen where there has been a 20-month long bloody civil war between the Houthi ethnic group and supporters of Yemen’s government led by President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi. At the request of the Yemeni government, an international coalition led by Saudi Arabia, have carried out air strikes across the country against the Houthi. For ordinary Yemenis, the consequences have been devastating. The UN now estimates that more than 10,000 people have been killed since the start of the conflict, with 6,000 people killed in 2016 alone. CAFOD is working with DEC to respond to this crisis.
