Heal the wounds of youngest victims for child victims

CHILDREN OF WAR APPEAL
In the run-up to Christmas the Independent is asking its readers to support four charities working to help child victims of the wars in the former Yugoslavia:

Save the Children is focusing its efforts on children who have been separated from their families, counselling and reuniting them;

The Red Cross is running the largest humanitarian operation in the region, looking after refugee camps and linking people through its messaging network;

War Child plans to build a pounds 2.5m music-therapy centre in Mostar, and to send urgently-needed prosthetics to wounded children in the Tuzla area;

Child Advocacy International aims to bring up to 100 sick children to Britain for treatment they could not obtain at home.

Please make your cheques or postal orders payable to the charities of your choice and send them to us with the completed coupon.
