Expressing continued concern over starvation in Cambodia, Donald Robinson, president of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, reported that the JDC, in addition to having made earlier contributions, has been accepting donations for Cambodian relief from the Jewish community together with its partners in the Interfaith Hunger Appeal, the Church World Services and the Catholic Relief Services. “The American Jewish communities have expressed great concern over the deteriorating situation in Cambodia and are anxious to help.” Robinson said. “We have informed them that they may send contributions to the JDC and earmark them for ‘Cambodia Rellief.'” Contributions may be sent to the Joint Distribution Committee, 60 East 42nd Street, New York, N.Y. 10017, or to the Interfaith Hunger Appeal, Box 5055, FDR Station, New York, N.Y. 10022.
