The Women’s International Zionist Organization spends $3,000,000 a year on its network of welfare, educational and vocational institutions for children, adolescents and women in Israel, Mrs. M. Genossar reported here today at the 13th world WIZO convention.

There are some 4,500 children, mostly in new immigrant camps and villages, receiving WIZO assistance. Two homes for children were opened, one in Jerusalem and one in Tel Aviv and the WIZO home industry project provides work for over 600 persons, including a number of Arab girls.
