THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Have you ever seen millions
of children starving to death?

ow you have.

This picture was taken a week ago. Chances are this child of Biafra is already
dead of starvation. Millions more seem doomed to follow.
Cruel conjecture? No. Tragic reality.
Innocent victims of a world they never made, the children of Biafra will die of
the starvation that is moving inexorably across Biafra.
If nothing is done, millions will die within a few months.

301,1 Obatt not 5tanb ibip by tije bioob of tbp neigbbor.
The American Jewish Emergency Effort for Biafran Relief, comprising the major
Jewish religious, communal, relief and philanthropic bodies, has been organized to
help save these millions of lives. It is cooperating with Catholic Relief Services,
Church World Service and the United States Committee for UNICEF, which have dis-,
tribution centers that get food and medicine through to the sick and starving.
The amount of help that wins the race with death is up to each of us. The more
money available, the greater, the quicker the effort. Ships, trucks, helicopters — a
massive sea and air lift of food and medicine—are possible. But only with your help.
Please send a check.
Do it today. Don't wait for death.
