The saints spent 2.5 hours at the organisation. The first half hour was spent understanding more about their organisation and the contributions they make worldwide. They were then divided into 3 groups. One group consisting of male were involved in manual labour. They had to separate various things such as toys and household items, pack them into cartons, put them on pallets and then shrink wrap them to make them ready for loading on containers to ships.

Another group of women had to fold and sort second hand clothing into various categories such as baby winter, baby summer, men summer and winter, women summer and winter as well as sportswear. This also entailed counting the clothes by item, and packing them into cartons.

Another group of women had to remove packaging and labels from various items of men and women’s clothing. They had to fold the items neatly, count them and pack them into boxes. Those cartons were being sent to Sudan, Malawi and China.

It was a very fulfilling experience and Crossroads were grateful for the support shown by the Mission. In the debrief session, they awarded a certification of appreciation.
