The Joint Distribution Committee has appropriated over a half a million dollars for the maintenance of orphan relief work in Europe and Palestine during the remainder of 1923.
Of the sum $271,500 will be used in Poland where the J.D.C. is supervising the care of 12,240 children in orphan asylums and private homes. $100,000 will go for Palestine orphans, $26,000 for Czecho-Slovakia, 23,000 for Lithuania and 22,000 for Turkey.
The entire number of orphans being supported by the J.D.C. throughout the field of its activities is 17,920.
