In this photo taken on March 5, 2013, needy Portuguese women go through second-hand clothes in the Portuguese charity AMI - International Medical Assistance center in Lisbon. The Portuguese charity AMI _ International Medical Assistance _ was set up almost three decades ago as a rapid response organization for catastrophes abroad. Now the emergency is at home. Before 2008, up to 8,000 people a year sought AMI's help in Portugal. In 2012, it was almost 16,000. In some places such as Porto, Portugal's second-largest city, the increase in people approaching the charity has been more than 250 percent since 2008. And some of the needy are university graduates.
