Provisions Made for War Orphans
The general federation of departmental associations of public schoolchildren has gained widespread recognition lately in view of the great work it is doing for the war orphans. The federation is composed of eighty-seven associations, which contribute to the support of 200,000 war orphans. During the year 1918 it has distributed to these orphans the total sum of 15 million francs.The federation has also taken the initiative in founding the first sanatorium for heliotherapy en altitude, in France. This sanatorium will be for the treatment of patients suffering from surgical tuberculosis. Mme. L. Stern has already promised a million francs toward the project, but a much larger sum is needed before the plan can be realized. It is proposed to locate the sanatorium in the department of Pyrénées-Orientales (Southern France), in the vicinity of Font-Romeu.
