Background: An International Fete in aid of the `Save the Children Fund' was opened at Park Lane House, in London's famous Park Lane, Dec 1.
Organised in co-operation with the Diplomatic Corps, London, the Fete hopes to raise funds for this world wide voluntary organisation founded to alleviate suffering among children without regard to race, nation, colour or creed.
Founded in 1919, the Fund sponsors a movement represented by similar organisations in 46 countries. Its work ranges from junior clubs for school children in England, and nurseries in Italy and Greece, to the education of destitute boys in Somaliland.
Articles one and four of the `Save the Children Fund' charter, typify its aims and ambitions towards the care and maintenance of children.
I. The Child must be protected beyond and above all considerations of race, nationality, or creed.
IV. The child that is hungry must be fed, the child that is sick must be nursed, the child that is physically or mentally handicapped must be helped, the maladjusted child must be re-educated, the orphan and the waif must be sheltered and succoured.
Voluntary welfare and medical workers of the `Fund' are active in almost all backward and underdeveloped countries, where Children are liable to be the prime sufferers.
So it is that Arabs and Jews, Negroes, Asians and Europeans receive exactly the same attention from the Fund's devoted band of doctors, nurses and welfare workers -- The only criterion is Need.
