The overwhelming response
both in volume and sum of con-
tributions surpasses the results
of previous "open mailbox" funds,
according to JDC spokesman
Amir Shaviv.
He attributed the response at
least in part to two full-page ads
placed by the JDC late last
month in the New York Times.
More than 2,500 individual do-
nations have been received from
Jews and non-Jews. The largest
single contribution was $10,000,
made by a Washington law firm.
"The victims are so innocent,
so helpless, and the tragedy has
been delivered to American liv-
ing rooms by the media," said Mr.
Shaviv, speculating on what he
called the "amazing" success of
the effort.
For many donors, the plight of
the Rwandan refugees evokes
memories of their own suffering.

the group to "please help the
Rwandan people."
Similarly, a former Cambodi-
an refugee wrote, "I know exact-
ly how they need help. I was
myself a refugee in Thailand be-
fore coming to the United States.
I was crying out for help."
Mr. Shaviv suggested that the
partnership forged last month be-
tween black and Jewish organi-
zations to provide relief to the
refugees helped broaden the spec-
trum of contributors because peo-
ple recognize the endeavor as "a
real human effort."
The JDC is working on this ef-
fort with the African-American
Institute, a multiracial, multi-
ethnic organization that special-
izes in creating mutual
understanding between the Unit-
ed States and Africa and devel-
oping human resources in Africa.
