i was most interested to read the article by Dr. David Rosenberg in your issue of December 7, as I am sure have been the many doctors who have co-operated with Dr. Rosenberg in the past.
Until recently, of course, he carried out his wonderful work. under the auspices of War on 'Want, which has financed his activities for three years.
think that all such helpers will be pleased to know that though Dr. Rosenberg has left War on Want, to establish the new charity "Intercare", the Medical Department of War on Want which he founded, is continuing fully operative through the established medical centres under the guidance still of the medical advisory subcommittee of the national War 'on Want council of management, on which I have the privilege to serve. Like many other Catholic doctors. I tried from 1964 onwards to establish various schemes for sending medical supplies to mission units in developing countries, but these were all abortive and it was only when Dr. Rosenberg joined War on Want that a viable scheme really got off the ground. Our own regional centre in Manchester has for the second year running in 1973 just sent overseas supplies to the value of over £20,000 and the "Post a Parcel" scheme which we introduced (£3 for every 22 lb. parcel) is still going strong.
