The Government of Israel will receive $2,500,000 from the International Refugee Organization to finance the permanent care of aged, sick and handicapped Jewish refugees, it was announced here today. The funds will be used to further an extensive building program in Israel to care for the so-called “hard core” cases among displaced persons.
