Nearly half of the Joint Distribution Committee’s 1945 appropriations of over $28,600,000 was used for emergency care for the surviving 150,000 Jewish children of Europe, the JDC revealed here today.

Nearly 24,000 children are known to have been aided in JDC-supported Jewish institutions, in five European countries from which full reports are available. In Rumania, from which reports are not complete, some 2,500 children are in OSE homes which are supported by the JDC, while another 2,400 are being cared for in Greece.
