Jewish Relief Committee
It's Work and Aims
This organization is now and has been carrying on
its work of rescue and salvation among the millions of
Jews, men, viien and children, who are dying of
starvation and disease in war-stricken Poland, . Lith
uania Russia, Galicia and Palestine.
It carries on its work under the direct supervision
of thp War Trade Board in hearty co-operation with the
lied 'Jrfss and our own Food Administrator, Herbert
Hoover. In fact Doctor Bogen, who is in charge of the
work in the War Zone, is also actively in charge of the
itcl Croes and Food Distribution for Mr. Hoover.
This committee has recently bough $800,000 worth
of clothing from the U. S. Army in France, which has
been shipped direct to Poland. The "VVestward-Ho" (in
Government Service) will sail again this week carry
ing oil. milk; clothing, shoes, etc., costing nearly a mil
Thoir work is absolutely non-sectarian thousands
of Gentiles receiving food and succor at the American
Jewish Food Kitchens which are scattered over thou
sands of miles of desolate country.. -.
And in connection with the Salvation Army's work at home,
there will go into every town and hamlet in the war scourged
countries of Central Europe and Western Asia ministering
angels with food, clotbuig and medicine. They will bring shel
ter to the homeless and hope to the destitute. This noble hu
manitarian work will be carried on by the three following re
'cognized agencies for world-wide relief work:
The Salvation Army
with its fifty years of home service .and its splendid war service,
facing increased opportunities and responsibilities,
The American-Jewish Relief Committee

Near East Relief Committee
It's Work and Aims
President Wilson in a recent proclamation wrote as
follows about the work of the American Committee for
Belief in the iVear East:
"For more than three years American philanthropy
has been a large factor in keeping alive Armenian, Syr
ian, Greek and other Exiles and Refugees of Western
"Past responses have been most generous but now
the period of rehabilitation is at hand. Vastly larger
sums v. ill be required to restore these once prosperous
but now impoverished refugees to their former homes,
than were required merely to sustain Jife in their
desert exile. '
"It is estimated that 4,000,000 Armenian, Syrian,
Greek and other war sufferers in the Near East require
outside helpi to sustain them. Many are now hundreds
of miles from their homeland. The vast majority of
them are helpless women and children including 400,
000 orphans.'' " " . . - '

of horriBle misery that the funds collected in this drive
will be expended. .'V . . . , .
