Sir: Thank you for highlighting the desperate needs of people in former Yugoslavia, and mentioning some of the aid agencies involved in relief work. Since the conflict began, Tear Fund has made grants totalling over pounds 700,000, largely to assist our partner Duhovna Stvarnost, with its work in Bosnia and Croatia.

Feeding programmes are set to continue until spring. One grant provided fuel for the Operation Christmas Child airlift, and many of our supporters in British churches packed shoeboxes with gifts for children.

Yours faithfully,

SHIRLEY COLLINS
