Moscow (Aug. 17)
The Ukrainian Jewish relief organization, “Do Pomoga,” which has done constructive relief work in the Ukraine for the last ten years, will be liquidated, it was announced today. The organization devoted itself to helping tens of thousands of declassed Jews, deprived of a living when their property and businesses were confiscated, to become qualified workers.
Some of the factories managed by the organization will be turned over to the Ozet, Russian-Jewish colonization organization, for the training of Jewish workers for settlement in Biro-Bidjan.
“Do Pomoga,” which is supported by the Agrojoint and the Ort, American Jewish relief organizations, maintains artisans shops and small factories in 300 Ukrainian cities and villages and employs thousands of declassed Jews.
The announcement on the liquidation of the organization gave assurances that neither the shops nor the employees of the organization will be affected by the liquidation.
