According to the UN, over half of those suffering from hunger around the world are from small farming communities. Despite producing food, these farmers are not able to provide for themselves.
The month of fasting provides an ideal opportunity to reflect upon our role and how we can make a difference; it is the perfect month to think Fairtrade and ensure farmers, locally and globally, get a better deal.
“Allah loves those who are fair and just” (Quran 49:9)
Justice and fairness are basic principles of trade in Islam. Through Fairtrade products, farmers and workers receive fair terms of trade, enabling them to have greater control over their livelihoods and lead dignified lives, which everyone deserves.
