SIR,-The letter on "World Refugee Year" from Mr. Nozonha may give the impression that funds will be raised primarily for the " United Nations Organisation."
The appeal in the United Kingdom will be mainly through the voluntary societies Catholic, Protestant and non-denominational
who form the World Refugee Year Committee and whose names appear on all its literature (available from 9 Grosvenor Crescent, London, SW-I). Funds raised through these will, in many cases, be allocated to the great religious agencies Catholic and Protestant
actually working in the refugee field.
Approximakly 80 per cent. of refugees in Austria, Germany and Italy are Catholic, and the National Catholic Welfare Conference and Caritas took after most, if not all, of these. Many agencies even if non-denominational, like " Aid to European Refugees" will be sending the hulk of their funds raised during World Refugee Year direct to religious agencies, Catholic and non-Catholic.
