Fair Trade #LiveFair #BeatPoverty and Anti-Poverty Week 2017, Dubai, UAE

This year the World Fair Trade Organization asked for my support with their Anti Poverty Week 2017 campaign #LiveFair & #BeatPoverty.

During the week I attended a Coffee Morning organised by my friend Maryam and kindly asked ladies to support Anti-Poverty Week 2017, Dubai, UAE.

I talked about Fair Trade, Fair Trade Chocolate and Anti Poverty Week.

There were approximately 30 ladies present and I made a few fair trade friends.

I also asked my dear friend Joanna who was visiting me from Poland to model for me.

Joanna was a great sport and I am grateful for her support during Anti Poverty Week.
