Independent readers have given more than pounds 100,000 to our appeal to support four charities working to help child victims of the wars in former Yugoslavia. The total recorded last night was pounds 100, 674.

We hope to improve on this figure before the end of the year. Please make your cheques or postal orders payable to the charity of your choice and send them to us with the completed coupon. The four charities are:

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

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

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

Child Advocacy International, which aims to bring 100 sick children to Britain for treatment.
