See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

In view of the American Relief Administration’s stoppage of its food remittance activity in Russia, the London Federation of Ukrainian Jews has made arrangements with Dr. Nansen, High Commissioner for the Relief of Europe, and the International Committee of the Red Cross whereby kosher food parcels may be sent to individuals in Russia and the Ukraine at cost of £1.3.0 per parcel.

The parcels contain 28 lbs. white flower, 8 tins milk, 4 lbs. kosher cooking fat, 4lbs. sugar and 2 lbs. tea. They may be sent to all parts of Russia and the Ukraine. Should any parcel not be delivered within three months, the money will be refunded to the sender, it is stated. One person cannot receive more than two parcels per month.
