  • Description

    RELIEF SUPPLIES OF MEDICINE AND FOOD HAVE BEEN SENT TO EARTHQUAKE STRICKEN PERSIA FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. IN RESPONSE TO AN URGENT APPEAL FROM TEHERAN, ISRAELI RED CROSS WORKERS PACKED A CONSIGNMENT OF PLASMA, DRUGS AND BLANKETS YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) FOR SHIPMENT BY AIR FROM TEL AVIV.

    AMERICAN ARMY AND AIR FORCE TRANSPORT PLANES FLEW INTO PERSIA DURING THE DAY WITH BLANKETS, TENTS AND MEDICAL SUPPLIES VALUED AT GBP200,000. THEY ALSO BROUGHT A 100-BED MOBILE HOSPITAL COMPLETE WITH DOCTORS, NURSES AND A PREVENTIVE MEDICINE TEAM. TWENTY-EIGHT U.S. PLANES FLEW IN FROM WESTERN GERMANY WITHIN 24 HOURS.

    (THE SHAH BEGAN A TOUR YESTERDAY OF THE DISASTER AREA. HE WAS TO SPEND THE NIGHT UNDER CANVAS AMONG THE VICTIMS. RESPONSE TO THE NEED TO HELP THE EARTHQUAKE HOMELESS AND INJURED WAS GATHERING MOMENTUM. PUBLIC FUNDS WERE BEING GENEROUSLY CONTRIBUTED SO THAT A HOUSE-BUILDING PROGRAMME COULD BEGIN BEFORE WINTER STARTS. THE ROAD TO GHAZVIN FROM TEHERAN WAS ALMOST BLOCKED WITH VEHICLES CARRYING FOOD AND OTHER NECESSITIES TO THE DISTRIBUTION AREAS.)
