Testimony of the service the Joint Distribution Committee is rendering to Jewish children is contained in a letter from two orphans, who act as spokesmen for a group who are now being sheltered and education by the Agro-Joint. The letter, made public by David A. Brown, national chairman of the United Jewish Campaign, read:

“A group of children, sent by the Agro-Joint to Samara, conveys its great thankfulness.

“We existed in Moscow in the midst of vice, vulgarity and things like these. The ‘Joint’ has succeeded in leading us into a new way of living. The ‘Joint’ sent us for four years to Samara to learn to adapt ourselves with theoretic and practical knowledge.

“The foundation of life, which we got there through the direct help of the ‘Joint’ has given our lives a purpose and led us Jewish boys on the right road.

“In the name of all the children here we send our deep gratitude to the Agro-Joint.”

(Signed “Kabisher and Click.”

According to the statement from the Agro-Joint accompanying the letter, the group consisted of 20 boys, children of refugees, who formerly lived a precarious life on the streets of Moscow. All of them have been taught trades and are now self-supporting.
