The German Clothing Foundation brought clothing and other relief supplies to Togo by shipping container. There, several institutions and many needy people are supplied. The Christian Association of Young People (YMCA) from Berlin established contact with the state in West Africa and collected clothing itself, as well as books, sports equipment and other items. Several local projects were supported with the donations. Clothing was also given to people affected by HIV/AIDS who live in centers in Lome and in the interior of the country.
