It’s true what people say. Recovery from a disaster can take decades. Haiti is one example. Six years on from their devastating tragedy, in January 2009, and the country continues to battle to find full recovery. More than half the population lives below the poverty line and jobs are scarce. Yet fair trade is having impact. Creative Haitian artisans have found a way. To take used metal drums and recycle them into beautiful works of art. For many artisans with Comite Artisanal Haitien, the money they earn making these crafts is their sole income.
