CRED believes in development through trade, and providing opportunities for people to help themselves. It’s easy to take for granted things like health care or welfare in developed countries: foundational things that enable you to live life as you do. We are pleased to support projects that are providing solid foundations for communities to develop, whether through short-term relief efforts or long-term community investment.
