The letter reports that 120 walkers at the 1992 Soweto Day Walkathon raised over $6,500 in pledges. The donations will be sent to the Christian Council of Mozambique and the Alexandra Civic Organization, Chicago's sister community in South Africa. The letter highlights the drought throughout the southern Africa region and the political transition to non-racial democracy in South Africa, which is threatened by government-sponsored violence of the Inkatha Freedom Party, the police and other covert military units.
