Fundraising mailing for The Africa Fund. The mailing says Newt Gingrich, Jesse Helms, and other Republicans in Congress are trying to abolish development aid to Africa that is needed to build schools, purify drinking water, and provide immunization against childhood disease. The mailing says without development aid, Africa won't have a future. Children will die for lack of vaccinations, there will be no money to build schools and roads, and countries without an educated work force or transportation systems won’t be able to attract investment. The mailing includes "SUPPORT FOR SOUTH AFRICA,a resolution passed by The United States Conference of Mayors International Affairs Committee at the Winter Meeting, January 1995" and a reply slip. The mailing discusses Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican Senators, profits, multi-national corporations, apartheid, colonialism, the right wing, and the Development Fund for Africa.
