Description

World's Alliance secretaries distribute relief funds to Serbian, Russian, and possibly a British prisoner outdoors at the prison camp at Haskovo. The Association sought to provide welfare support to destitute POW's to help then survive their incarceration. Some of the prisoners are recuperating from wounds but are able to muster to receive their money. The World's Alliance distributed 3.3 million Swiss francs to Allied prisoners in Bulgaria during the war.
