Appeal on behalf of the Inter-Church Aid and Refugee Service of the British Council of Churches by the Secretary, Janet Lacey
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.
