    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.
