Download PDF for this date

The International Refugee Organization announced today that it has allocated $6,000,000 for the Jewish Agency’s refugee resettlement program. Part of the sum has already been turned over to the Agency. Half of the $6,000,000 will be used for youth immigration to Israel.

The International Red Cross is preparing plans for future work in Palestine. The Lebanese Government has asked the organization to help it remove the equipment and medical supplies of a Lebanese hospital from Acre, in northern Israel, to Lebanon.
