Mailing about the launch of the Bishop Tutu Refugee Fund and an appeal for funds to support refugees and victims of apartheid. The mailing discusses Tutu’s daughter Naomi and her husband Corbin Seavers. The mailing says $5 a day can provide basic food, shelter and clothing for one refugee in the Kagisong refugee transit center; $3,000 can provide one promising refugee student a full scholarship in Botswana, and $5,000 can provide $50,000 worth of medical supplies to the refugee camps. The mailing says the South African Council of Churches needs $30,000 this year to assist the families of South African exiles and families who have been displaced inside South Africa by recent violence.
