The press release says registers will oped on 21 March, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, at United Nations Headquarters and United Nations Information Centres in several countries to receive public contributions for “victims of the policies of apartheid and racism in South Africa.” Contributions will be accepted for the United Nations Trust Fund for South Africa and the United Nations Educational and Training Programme (for South Africa, Namibia, Southern Rhodesia and Territories under Portuguese administration). At the U.N. Headquarters, volunteers from two non-governmental organizations -- the United Nations Association of the United States and the African Aid and Legal Defense Fund (of the American Committee on Africa) – will assist at the Register desks. [Note: African Aid and Legal Defense Fund changed its name to The Africa Fund in 1969.]
