Christian Sööt, the manager of the Bratislava project, told the SITA newswire that the clothing will be sorted and one part will be sent to developing countries in Africa. The other part will be sent to second-hand shops here and the earnings will be used to finance other HUMANA projects such as HIV prevention and various educational programs. Currently, HUMANA has about 29,000 of these collection receptacles across the globe and supports humanitarian activities in Africa, Latin America and Asia, especially in India and China.
