    TRANSCRIPT: HARTLEY - BREWER: "THERE IS GOING TO BE PUBLICITY AND EDUCATION AND INFORMATION CAMPAIGN WHICH WILL REACH A CLIMAX OF THE DAY OF THE COLLECTION ITSELF, AND A LARGE PART OF THAT EDUCATION CAMPAIGN WILL CONSIST OF ATTEMPTS TO INFORM SCHOOLCHILDREN OF THE PROBLEMS, TO EDUCATE A NEW GENERATION ABOUT THE TERRIBLE CONDITIONS IN WHICH A MILLION LARGELY FORGOTTEN REFUGEES ARE LIVING IN AFRICA. AND WE WILL BE MAKING AVAILABLE FREE TO SCHOOLS ARE OVER THE COUNTRY A TEACHERS' KIT,INVOLVING PROJECTS AND SO ON SO THAT CHILDREN CAN LEARN ABOUT THIS".



    KELLY: "THE MOST BURNING NEED IN THE WORLD TODAY IS UNDOUBTEDLY IN AFRICA, AND WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL INDEED, WE ARE VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THE BRITISH STUDENTS FOR HAVING HAD THIS INITIATIVE TO START THIS APPEAL, AND WE IN THE UNITED NATIONS WISH THEM EVERY POSSIBLE SUCCESS IN THEIR ENDEAVOUR.



    IN SUDAN WHERE WE HAVE 30-THOUSAND - 30 THOUSAND REFUGEES FROM ETHIOPIA WE ARE GOING TO SETTLE THEM IN AGRICULTURE. NOW, THE SUDAN IS A COUNTRY WHERE THE NEED FOR WATER IS PARAMOUNT. WE ARE GOING TO SETTLE THEM IN AN AREA OF GOOD LAND, GOOD AGRICULTURAL LAND, WHERE THEY WILL BE VERY PROSPEROUS. BUT IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF CAPITAL TO GET THE PIPE LINE DOWN.THIS IS GOING TO COST A LOT OF MONEY, SOMETHING LIKE GBP 200-THOUSAND OVER AND ABOVE THE MONIES I'VE DESCRIBED EARLIER".

    Background: BRITISH UNIVERSITY STUDENTS TODAY LAUNCHED A MASSIVE PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN WHICH WILL CULMINATE IN A NATION-WIDE DOOR-TO-DOOR COLLECTION TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE ESTIMATED ONE-MILLION REFUGEES ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT. SARA - STUDENT APPEAL FOR REFUGEES IN AFRICA - WAS FORMALLY LAUNCHED AT A PRESS CONFERENCE IN LONDON, AND CLAIMS TO HAVE THE BACKING OF EVERY MAJOR STUDENT ORGANISATION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM.

    THE STUDENTS INTEND TO SWAMP THE BRITISH PUBLIC WITH MASSIVE ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN WITH THE AIM OF MAKING EVERY HOME IN THE COUNTRY AWARE OF PROBLEM, AND THEN TO TRY AND CALL ON AS MANY OF THE HOMES AS POSSIBLE TO COLLECT FUNDS. SARA AIMS AT ASSISTING REFUGEES TOWARDS PERMANENT SETTLEMENT AND NOT JUST PROVIDING IMMEDIATE RELIEF.

    MIKE HARTLEY-BREWER, THE CAMPAIGN DIRECTOR, TOLD NEWSMEN TODAY THAT WHILE SARA HAD BEEN FORMED ON THE INITIATIVE OF STUDENTS, AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE IN THE COUNTRY WERE NEEDED TO HELP.

    INDUSTRY, COMMERCE, BANKS, NEWSPAPERS AND TELEVISION NETWORKS HAVE ALL PROMISED HELP IN THE CAMPAIGN.
