The Joint Distribution Committee announces that the ICA has forwarded to the Joint the sum of $62,500 to be used for reconstruction work in Lithuania. The money will be used for people’s banks and loans for house-bouilding.
The sum of $2,640,000 had been expended up to June 1 by the Joint for reconstruction work. The wide scope of the work is seen in the figures which show that 353 credit corporations are fostered by the Joint.
