    Background: IN EMBATTLED VIETNAM, WAR ORPHANS ARE ON THE INCREASE. TO CARE FOR THESE UNFORTUNATE CHILDREN, THE BRITISH VOLUNTARY ORGANISATION "SAVE THE CHILDREN FUND", HAS BUILT A CENTRE. IT IS SITUATED IN QUI NHON, SOME 300 MILES NORTHEAST OF SAIGON, WHERE THE KOREAN TROOPS HAVE THEIR HEADQUARTERS.

    THE CENTRE WAS PAID FOR BY CONTRIBUTIONS FROM MANY COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES. IT WAS OPENED ON MONDAY (FEB 20) BY THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR, MR. P.A. WILKINSON. AND AMONG THE GUESTS WAS THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE MINISTER FOR SOCIAL AFFAIRS, MR. NGUYEN KUAN PHONG.

    THE CENTRE IS UNDER THE DIRECTION OF MISS BRIDGET STEVENSON. SHE IS BEING ASSISTED BY TWO BRITISH NURSES, MISS J. REAVEY AND MISS J. RINGE
