In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, CADESA has used a part of its Fairtrade bonus to purchase and distribute 400 small water tanks and soap to all its members, and has distributed food to its most vulnerable members. In addition to distributing these items, it organized training sessions to help local communities learn about and implement the necessary safety measures to contain the pandemic. Events like these are necessary to raise awareness, particularly in the remote and rural areas where CADESA operates and where local authorities’ actions are very limited.
