Emmaus Stockholm is a community made up of 30 employees, who carry out the traditional activities of Emmaus communities of collecting, sorting and selling goods at low prices. The group runs two second-hand shops: one sells all manner of items and a large range of clothing, books and toys. The other sells vintage items.
Emmaus Stockholm also has a sorting centre on the Västberga industrial estate. Income from the group’s activities goes towards supporting the liberation movement Polisario for a free Western Sahara, and to spread information about Africa’s last colony and challenge opinions both of politicians and the public. The group also sends humanitarian aid to the refugees of Western Sahara. Emmaus Stockholm collaborates with some Swedish organisations, including IMÄI (no-one is illegal) to whom they give both money and clothes. It also supports ADRA, an Angolan organisation promoting democracy and organic farming.
