on behalf of the Inter-Church Aid and Refugee Service of the British Council of Churches, by Cliff Michelmore.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Cliff Michelmore, Esq., [address removed]

Over 20,000,000 refugees are wandering over the face of the earth in search of security or lying uselessly in camps, wholly dependent upon charity. Since voluntary agencies took over this work from the United Nations International Refugee Organisation six years ago, Inter-Church Aid alone has moved some 100,000 refugees to new countries and resettled thousands more where they are.
