How la the Money Spent?

How la the Money Spent?

Of the Swiss Fr. 42,566 (about 11d. N.Z.) made aavilable by the N.Z. I.S.S. Committee in the financial year ending September, 1947, half were used in China according to the wishes of the donors. The funds sent to China were divided between the National Student Relief Committee in Shanghai, and the I.S.S. Committee in Nanking, and were used in these two organizations' general programme of student relief, including student centres, nutrition projects, international scholarships, etc. Full information concerning the Chinese Committee's programme can be found in the W.S.R. Annual Report on "The Road to Recovery." The funds used in Europe were divided as follows:—
Student Rest Centre. Combloux, France. Swiss Fr. 9000
Student Rest Centre, Moni Pendeli, Greece 3000
Polish TB Students, at Leysin, Switzerland 4000
Refugee Students in France 5000

The Combloux Rest Centre is one of W.S.R.'s oldest and most successful projects. It is subsidised by the French Social Insurance Scheme but requires Fr. 3000 a month to maintain a supply of nourishing food.

The Moni Pendeli Rest Centre is a similar one which caters for rundown students. The W.S.R. contribution is 1200 Fr. a month. The other two items of expenditure need no explanation.
