Israel’s Children to Aid Korean Youngsters; Cultivation of Abandoned Groves Started

Israel’s children will participate in international aid for the children of Korea, it was announced here today. The announcement said that the children of the Jewish state will send to the children of Korea large quantities of orange juice.

Cultivation of 7,000 duname of abandoned groves that have been neglected for the last three years because of the shortage of irrigation equipment was begun by the office of the Custodian for Abandoned Property in Israel.

It is hoped that the citrus groves will yield 500,000 cases of citrus products for export next season. Groves supervised by the Custodian’s office last season provided a half-million workdays for new immigrants in Israel.
