"A hot post-service beverage might seem a world away from the oppression of workers in other Communion countries such as Sri Lanka, Ghana and Colombia. Nevertheless a visit to Wales from a Cameroon banana farmer [Mbide Charles Kude] underlined the truth that 'shopping justly' can affect the future of a nation". The Rev. Carol Wardman, the Church in Wales' Bishops' adviser for Church and Society invited trade unionist and farmer Kude to Wales "to meet local Anglicans there. His visit was part on an ongoing drive to make the Church in Wales the Anglican Communion's first Fairtrade-accredited province. Fairtrade is an international movement to ensure people in producer countries get a fair deal. It is an initiative that many churches in the West have taken up". "The only concrete thing the churches need to do is to provide Fairtrade tea and coffee whenever they provide refreshments at a church event, and to promote Fairtrade in any way they can". "'It's part of our Christian witness to support people in every way that we can and trade is an important way for doing that', Carol said. 'It's a fairly easy thing to do -- you can easily buy Fairtrade produce everywhere and you know it's ethically sourced and [the companies] are treating their workers properly. Also, we're very much aware that the aid agenda is changing and it's not necessarily just about giving to charity, but it's also about how we're spending our money when we're actually shopping and actually thinking about the ethical sourcing of products or items that we use. It's a bit contradictory if you're giving to a development agency with one hand and then going out and buying something that's exploiting someone with the other'."
