Last May 24, the Southern Partners and Fair Trade Center in Cebu, Philippines celebrated the World Fair Trade Day at the Green Village in San Remegio, northern part of Cebu.

The community in Sitio Aningan and Brgy. Victoria were one of the victims of the super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). However, it turned out to be a blessing as SPFTC spearheaded their rehabilitation and rebuilding project. Not only where they given 40 houses with the help of Mr. Werner Dick and the Swiss Foundation, but they will be trained and empowered to have their own organic farms and earn a better livelihood as suppliers of for the Fair Trade Shop.

The day was filled with celebration, blessings of the 40 houses, empowering talks, livelihood training and of course a feel good afternoon party.
