In the midst of a deadly earthquake in Haiti, charity clothing pickup at a warehouse in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, has ended after just three days.
A group of people carrying sacks of clothing and shoes headed to the warehouse to pick up donations after a disaster left thousands homeless, with many people left stranded.
In the end, all that was left were about 60 bags of clothes and shoes.
The company said the truck was not loaded with donated clothing, and no one was injured in the incident.
The truck’s driver was arrested.
The owner of the company did not respond to a request for comment.
The incident came after the United Nations issued a statement calling for an end to the use of charity clothing as a means of transportation for the poor.
The United Nations said the trucks should not be used as a vehicle for transportation of items of value.
The charity movement has seen a surge in recent years.
It began with the relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and has expanded to include food aid, food banks and other programs.
