Report on projects of The Africa Fund related to the Portuguese colonies of Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau, where there is armed struggle for independence led by the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and the Cape Verde Islands (PAIGC), and the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO). The report includes a quote of Amilcar Cabral. While The Africa Fund's concern includes all of Africa, since its inception in 1967 it has concentrated on Southern Africa where nearly 30 million Africans are prisoners of colonialism and apartheid. The report says The Africa Fund has provided funds for legal defense for defendants in South Africa and Namibia (South West Africa); medical, educational and emergency aid for Angolan and Mozambican refugees; assistance to prisoners and detainees in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia); and welfare aid to political prisoners' families. The report says Portugal is heavily subsidized by western allies including racist South Africa and the U.S. and other NATO partners. The report discusses the UN Committee of 24 (Special Committee on Decolonization). The report discusses medical services of MPLA called Servico de Assistencia Medica (SAM) (Medical Assistance Services). The report includes information on the education programs and schools of Institute Amizada (Friendship Institute) of Guinea. The Africa Fund works with the Mozambique Institute, which is the primary fund-raising and technical assistance agency for educational, medical, economic and social services of the Mozambican people. The report discusses Tunduru (primary school, economic/social welfare training) and other facilities in Tanzania. • The Africa Fund • Introduction to African Projects • A Dispensary in Free Angola • Friendship Institute • Mozambique Institute Secondary School at Bagamoyo
