Please assist SA Jewry Somalia Relief Fund

South African Jewry is now answering the worldwide call to assist with relief to alleviate this suffering caused by the civil war in that country, as well as drought in the region.
The Jewish Coalition for Disaster Relief (JCDR), an alliance of U.S. and foreign Jewish agencies that provide a united Jewish response to humanitarian disasters, has formed a special coordinating group in response to the drought and ensuing famine in East Africa.
The South African Jewish Board of Deputies has opened an account for those wishing to donate relief funds, which will then be sent via the JCDR.
We encourage our members to join the other progressive Jews and donate to this very worthy cause.
Please send donations to:
Account name: SA Jewish Board of Deputies
Bank: Standard Bank Killarney (code 007205)
Account number: 200305190
