Clothing World Needy People  

Clothing World for Needy People (CWNP) is a non-profit organization founded in the state of Nebraska, and its headquarter is located in the city of Omaha. CWNP aims at gathering clothes from various donor sources including households, charities, businesses of all sizes and individuals to help clothe poor and the needy people: displaced persons, people living in remote areas, refugee camps, and the most affected villages by war. Clothing World for the Needy People was founded by a former refugee on July 2013, shortly on the occasion of his return to Africa. The war had displaced thousands of South Sudanese people to East African countries, and around the globe. After the war erupted, civilians fled their homes, their livelihood was destroyed. With the continuing unrest in the region today, the number of people in need of clothing is growing daily.  CWNP volunteers are motivated to collect clothing donations and deliver them to people in needs. They are committed and dedicated to raise global awareness about this population of people in desperate need of clothing. CWNP’s mission is to gather and distribute clothing to refugees, displaced persons, and others who are in severe need of clothing.
