THEN THE ORGANISATION OFFERED TO GET CHILDREN OUT OF ISRAEL BUT GRADUALLY, LIVING UP TO THE NAME THEY HAD ADOPTED-CHILDREN IN NEED -- MEMBERS BEGAN TO SPREAD THE SCOPE OF THEIR ORIGINAL PLAN.

    WHEN COMPLETED THE VILLAGE WILL HOUSE 30 CHILDREN. THEY WILL LEARN GERMAN, BE ACCEPTED INTO FAMILIES FOR FURTHER CARE AND TAUGHT A TRADE. AFTER THAT THEY WILL RETURN HOME TO WORK FOR THEIR OWN COUNTRIES.

    HELP FOR THE VILLAGE HAS COME FROM MANY QUARTERS. THE LAND AND BUILDING MATERIALS WERE DONATED BY VARIOUS COMPANIES AND VOLUNTEER BUILDERS HAVE INCLUDED SOLDIERS AND POLICEMEN.

    THE FIRST INHABITANTS OF THE NEW VILLAGE HAVE ALREADY ARRIVED AT OBERHAUSEN. FIVE SERIOUSLY WOUNDED SOUTH VIETNAMESE CHILDREN, THEY ARE BEING TREATED IN THE TOWN'S HOSPITAL.
