Relief Fund for War Sufferers

In response to the call for contributions for the relief of Christian Scientists in distress by reason of the present war in Europe, the sum of $82,104.02 has been received by the Treasurer of The Mother Church. Of this amount $77,595.51 has been disbursed to the relief committees organized by Mr. McCrackan in England, Germany, France, and Switzerland, as called for by them. Much gratitude has been expressed by the Christian Scientists in these countries for the help extended to them by their brethren in America.

In addition to the $82,104.02 collected for the relief of Christian Scientists, there has also been collected the sum of $29,154.90 for the relief of war sufferers other than Christian Scientists. This entire amount has been disbursed to relief committees of Christian Scientists in Holland, England, Germany, France, and Switzerland. The total amount received to date for these two funds is $111,258.92, of which but $4,508.51 remains unexpended. As the need for help still continues, this small balance will not last long; therefore Christian Scientists are given the opportunity to continue to send contributions to the Treasurer of The Mother Church for this relief work. For the future it is proposed to maintain but one fund, and from this both Christian Scientists and others will be assisted.
