Actually, donating clothes to third world countries is one of the worst forms of charity you can do.
These countries have an economy, it's tiny but it's there. Their clothing industry needs to be self sustaining for things to get better long term, and donating clothes undercuts their efforts. You're increasing their quality of life a little bit in the short term but preventing them from being able to stand on their own.

In all seriousness - while the lady's heart is in the right place....this is actually not a good thing to do.

A lot of local businesses go bankrupt in poor countries when a rich first-world organization sends a town free stuff. These people are poor, but they aren't less intelligent or less skilled. Locals could produce clothing and sell it for a fair price....but nobody will buy clothing when it is given out free from a truck.

A lot of food donations put local farmers out of business.

The biggest problem though, is that people don't donate forever. Something makes the news, and all the money goes towards that. So the village that *was* getting free food doesn't have farmers anymore....then the free food stops coming. Then they have mass starvation. THEN people send them more food.

It's a vicious cycle.

Over the past 60 years at least $1 trillion of development-related aid has been transferred from rich countries to Africa. Yet real per-capita income today is lower than it was in the 1970s, and more than 50% of the population

All African school girls in certain countries are required to shave their heads. They do this for three reasons. 1.) Outbreaks of lice are pretty atrocious there since they don't have the special shampoo as easily available as it is here. 2.) They think when girls have hair they spend too much time maintaining it when they could do more productive things. 3.) They know shaved heads are unattractive so they do it to try to reduce sexual activity and thus lower teen pregnancy and STI transmission.
