Since the campaign for funds for the work of the ORT-Oze-Emigdirekt in the East European countries was opened in South Africa by Dr. Leon Bramson, a sum of £19,597.13s.1d. was promised and £17,422.9s. was collected. Of this sum, £15,000 have been remitted to Europe and distributed under the auspices of the ORT, Oze and Emigdirekt for the purpose of reconstructing the social and economic conditions of the Jewish masses in Eastern Europe, states the report issued here by the South African Committee of the Reconstruction Campaign of Eastern Europe The sum of £1,732.8s.7d absorbed in the administration expenses shows the low percentage of 8.84.

An appeal is made to all branches which have not yet completed their work, to make a determined effort to close down by collecting the outstanding amounts.
