Letter: Jewish concern for all human suffering

Sir: What a pity that Charles Mayorkas felt obliged to spend what was obviously a large sum of money to upbraid us all by letting us know how much he cares (Classified, 7 September).

I sent my contribution in aid of Bosnia and Somalia to United Kingdom Jewish Aid and International Development last week. I also contributed last year for the Kurds through this agency, as well as sending money to the Kurds' own group in London.

Mr Mayorkas should be advised that UKJAID's address is 30 Gordon Street, London WC1 0AN. I do hope that his donation will reflect the extent of his concern.

Yours very truly,


London, N2
