The St. Marguerite d’Youville "Faith in Action Ministry" (Brampton, Ontario) made a contribution of $300 to ACCESS Dominican Republic.
The Faith in Action Ministry is dedicated to introducing Fair Trade products into the Canadian market. They sell items such as Cocoa Camino brand sugar and Fair Trade Certified organic chocolate, which comes from the Dominican Republic – the advantage for this product is that it is made by Dominicans who are being paid fair wages. The promotion of these products is beneficial to many workers in the Dominican Republic because it allows them to receive just wages, instead of sweat-shop and less-than minimum wage pay.
A huge thank you goes out to the people involved in this ministry for their support. For more information about the Cocoa Camino products, visit www.cocoacamino.com.
