THE rather overwhelming news " of the grant of £1,000 for refugee work in Korea, is described by Sister Angelica in a leter of thanks to the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief.
Sister Angelica is Superior ol the fslaryknoll Sisters' clinic at Pusan. " Very often," she writes, " our mailbag yields heartening indications that the poor ot Korea are not entirely ignored by the rest of the world.
" Seldom is this compassion combined with such a substantial means of improving the lot of these poorest of the poor. We are very grateful.
" The city of Pusan, with a population doubled by refugees. has been razed in large sections by fire. 'The latest one swept a hill very close to the clinic. wiping out the homes of 8,000 people, and destroying their belongings. " Giving help to these homeless thousands soon depleted our relief supplies and we wondered how they would be replenished. The answer came with astonishing swiftness."
