(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Hundreds of Jewish families who suffered in the flood in Borisoff last week are appealing for aid. The number of flood victims is increasing as the water is causing further damage to the houses.

The city is organizing relief, but it is insufficient for the number of victims. Many Jewish houses have been totally destroyed.
