In some 300 agricultural settlements throughout
Palestine, youngsters like these from Europe are
healing the scars of war through a balanced pro
gram of schooling, recreation, work. Great em
phasis is placed on the rehabilitation of children.
Six months ago, a year ago, the children you see in these photo

They were undernourished, half-starved, ready to die.

And only because somebody—it may have been you—gave the
money which took them away from Europe’s misery snd sent them
to Palestine. To flourish. To grow. To live. To be put in the hands
of people who care.,. people who love them.
How many more will you me?

But there are thousands— thousands —of children who aren’t so
lucky. Kids who still are all over Europe, starving for bread, plead
