Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
There are said to be forty million refugees in the world today. They are to be found in many troubled parts of the world. By sheer weight of numbers, refugees have become one of the world's major social problems. The Refugee Service of the British Council of Churches is playing a considerable part in helping to relieve the distress of millions of these unhappy people, each one of whom is a human being needing first a home and freedom from fear. Emigration of families, children's welfare, homes for sick and aged are only some of the services provided.

BBC Home Service Scottish

by J. H. Watson
Before the war, as an iron worker on Tyneside, Mr. Watson lived for considerable periods on the dole (and when he was a child there was no dole). Recalling the times of hunger and the times of plenty, he can find no virtue in being hungry. But he considers that most people in this country are in danger now of taking their daily bread for granted, and of forgetting what hunger means.
