Click to follow
MONEY is continuing to pour in for the The Independent and the Independent on Sunday's Iraq appeal which now stands at more than pounds 60,000.

With the help of two charities, Medical Aid for Iraqi Children (MAIC) and CARE International UK, we will be able to help more than 2,000 children who are still suffering in the aftermath of the Gulf War.

Professor Soad Tabaqchali, medical director of MAIC, said the response was "fantastic. I knew that once people knew what was going on then they would react". Please send cheques, made out to The Independent Iraq Appeal, to PO Box No 6870, London E14 5BT.

n A pounds 7m humanitarian aid package for food, medicines and mine-clearance in Iraq has been announced by International Development Secretary Clare Short.
