1985 Red Cross Relief to Parts of Africa

Writing about web page http://www.redcross.org/museum/19801999c.html

In 1985, the American Red Cross launched a massive relief effort for the sub-Saharan region in Africa. The goal was to raise $5 million dollars, but raised over $24.5 million from the American people and government. The Red Cross was able to distribute food, seed, set up transportation, education, hospitals and much more in more than 16 African countries that had been riddled with famine and political unrest. Most of the recipients of the relief were the elderly, mothers and children.
