SAN FRANSCISCO, Mar. 28 (AP)-
Five million dollars for rehabilitation of Korean civilians will be
the aim of a fundraising campaign sponsored by the American-Korea
Palmer Davis, executive director of the organization,
announced the plans Thursday after arriving by plane from an eight-day
inspection tour of Korea with members of the Foundation.
The mission, led by Dr. Howard Rusk of New York
City's Bellevue Medical center, traveled through the war-torn country
examining civilian conditions and visiting Korean hospitals.
"There's a shortage of everything
except orphans," Davis reported.
Main hopes of the foundation are to support training
programs for hospital personnel, to help orphanages, and to start
an educational program.
