United Nations Women's Guild Presents $24,000 Collected for UNKRA
A gift of $24,000 collected by the United Nations Women's Guild from visitors to the United Nations was presented to Lt. Gen. John B. Coulter, Agent-General of the UN Korean Reconstruction Agency (UNKRA) in a ceremony at UN Headquarters today. These funds will be used to establish a children's ward at the Tongnae Rehabilitation Centre in Korea, a joint project of the Republic of Korea and UNKRA, designed originally for disabled veterans, but which will now treat Korean civilians as well.
