Supporters of Afghan relief

The success of the recent Afghan refugee relief effort here was due to the generosity of the theater-goers attending the film “Kandahar,” to the graciousness of the Magic Theatre folks in offering theater time and space for the concurrent relief effort, to the presence of the volunteers who nightly introduced the purpose of the relief drive.

Eight hundred dollars will be forwarded to the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan for work amongst women and children, and $640 to the American Friends Service Committee for Afghan refugee relief generally.

Our thanks to all.
