Koopera shop Almeria.
CARITAS ALMERIA has opened a second-hand clothes shop in the capital.
The inauguration was attended by the Bishop of Almeria, Adolfo Gonzalez Montes and representatives from the national, regional and local governments, Caritas and the Koopera network.
The no-profit Koopera Store in Plaza de San Sebastian is the first to open in Andalucia and its principal aim is to provide employment and social integration for those who would otherwise be at risk of exclusion.
The Caritas Koopera project in Almeria plans to install recycling points for clothes and textiles in the province’s largest municipalities, ensuring an ethical use for unwanted clothes and shoes.
The Plaza de San Sebastian shop is the 27th that Caritas has opened in Spain and will provide direct employment for 14 people.
