Christian Scientists who through the news columns of The Christian Science Monitor are aware of continuing shortages, lack, and homelessness in many parts of the world often ask whether overseas relief is now being carried on in any form by The Mother Church, and if so, how they can participate in it.
Although the formal project in which branch churches in the United States and Canada provided CARE food parcels for churches in Europe last winter and spring was completed some time ago, The Mother Church has continued to watch the situation and to endeavor to help in varying ways in those localities where Christian Scientists are most urgently in need. Thus, in the autumn of 1948 additional foodstuffs and fats were made available to church groups in Austria, Czechoslovakia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Japan, the Netherlands, and Poland. In October, 1948, a project for sending food in substantial quantities to similar groups in eastern Germany and the city of Berlin was set up in three sections and continued during the winter. By working at times with CARE (of which the Committee on Wartime Activities of The Mother Church is a member agency) it has been possible to send food to Christian Scientists in localities where the use of other means might prove unwise. During 1948 clothing conservatively valued at $66,934.00 was sent overseas in various ways—the largest portion going to Germany— and gift literature was supplied in large quantities to Germany and to other countries whose citizens were not permitted to send money to the United States for its purchase.
All of these activities have been made possible by unsolicited contributions designated for that purpose and sent to The Mother Church, by gift packages prepared by individual Christian Scientists in many localities, or by branch churches acting in co-operation with the Committee on Wartime, Activities.
