State Department Signs Pact with Unitarians for Sending Medical Mission to Israel

The Department of State and the Unitarian Service Committee today signed a Point Four agreement, under which the Committee will send a 14-men medical mission to Israel for a sir-week period. The project, which grew out of a request by the government of Israel, is jointly financed by the World Health Organization and by Point Four grant.

The mission will consist of outstanding American and European physicians who will contribute their services in order to share modern medical techniques with the doctors of Israel. The Unitarian Service Committee has recently sponsored similar projects in Germany at the request of the United States Government.
