Medical Aid Group Will Send Supplies To North Vietnam
Peter H. Wolff, professor of Psychiatry and co-chairman of Medical Aid for Indochina (MAI), said yesterday that the Indochina ceasefire will permit MAI to send funds directly to the small villages of North Vietnam.
MAI is arranging to send textbooks to medical schools in North Vietnam, Wolff said. He added that the group has already raised $500,000 for the restoration of the Bach Mai Hospital, which American planes bombed last December.
Wolff added that MAI has been providing medical supplies and equipment to Indochina for the last 18 months. Aid to South Vietnam was cut off because supplies sent there "simply disappeared," he said.
MAI netted $8000 from a concert by local music groups in Sanders Theatre last Saturday.
