All if these items are sorted, bagged, and bales in 45 kg (100lbs) bundles by many volunteers at CAM Canada’s warehouse. Funds received for this program cover the costs for packaging the clothing, transporting the loaded containers to the destination, as well as distributions in the needy countries. This program is a very practical way to help many people facing difficult economic situation in some countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.
