Founded in 1949 by the Church of the Brethren, Sales Exchange for Refugee Rehabilitation Vocation (or SERRV) started as a way to help refugees in post-WWII Europe. SERRV is a nonprofit alternative trade organization that promotes social and economic justice for people in developing regions of the world by marketing their handcrafts and food products in a just and direct manner. Although SERRV now has partnerships with many artisans who are not refugees, the acronym has been retained.

SERRV is a fellow member of the Fair Trade Federation and a pioneer in the Fair Trade world. Take a look at their excellent products at http://serrv.org.
