Refugee Service Faces Serious Financial Situation

Download PDF for this date

Continued pressure of demands for services to refugees, coupled with an unanticipated shortage of cash receipts from the United Jewish Appeal, has confronted the National Refugee Service with a “serious financial situation,” according to the report of the NRS for the July-September quarter of 1940. Many demands for essential services in the program of adjustment and resettlement of refugees are being met at present “only on a minimum basis,” it is stated in the report, which appeals for the prompt payment of individual pledges to the U.J.A. in order to enable the NRS to “continue its vital work with the refugees from Nazi-dominated countries.”
