Their mothers, destitute arid probably homeless, are striving hard but helplessly to save these children on whom Belgium's future depends. Nearly old men, women and children in Belgium are absolutely dependent on help from Britain and America. Unless we feed mem, hundreds of thousands must starve to death! The Belgian Relief Fund has saved them so far. Administered by a wonderfully efficient neuli-a! Commission, it has for more than a yeaf-now provided food for nearly all the Seven Million Belgians still in the country. Those who have money pay for it, but there is a steadily growing number who must be fed free. For this at least is needed monthly in contributions. Great Britain, burdened as she is, is giving all she can. The United States has responded generously, and her business men are running the Commission as public relief was never handled before.
