Download PDF for this date

The Canadian Government plans to make a special World Refugee Year gift of $1, 000, 000 worth of flour to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Middle East, it was reported here today.

The Canadian gift will total about 11,300 long tons of flour, which will meet the relief agency’s needs for flour for a little more than a month. Savings resulting from the gift will be applied to the agency’s vocational training of Arab refugees and related activities.

UNRWA has appealed for at least $4,000,000 from World Refugee Year funds to make possible a substantial expansion of its vocational training and self-help programs.
