A pro-Israel campaign in Surinam, Netherlands Antilles, has netted $30,000, which was turned over here today to the director of the Israel Campaign in Holland by Dr. Josef Einaar, Surinam’s Minister to The Hague. In presenting the $30,000 check to the local campaign head, Leo Palache, the diplomat said the money had been earmarked to help Magen David Adom, the Israeli equivalent of the Red Cross.
