Lim for African freedom groups

The World Council of Churches announced last week that since 1972 its Inter-Church Aid Commission had given African liberation movements more than £500,000 worth of agricultural, educational and medical help.

The Geneva-based WCC said the assistance had been given to movements in Angola, GuineaBissau and Mozambique. More than 93 per cent of the money had been provided by churches and governments in Africa, the West Indies, North America, Europe and New Zealand.

The programme, which is separate from cash grants made through the council's special fund to combat racism, gives priority to projects likely "to promote the freedom, dignity and quality of life of black Africans and other oppressed groups.
