· Ray Offenheiser of Westford Street, President of Oxfam America, traveled to Albania in April, two weeks after the bombing had begun in the NATO-Serbian war in Kosovo. His goal was to determine the needs of the refugees at the Tirana border crossing between Kosovo and Morina, Albania.

There, Offenheiser spent four days meeting with major U.N. and other aid agencies and visiting refugee camps in Kukes, a town of 20,000, which had refugees originally numbering 100,000 but grew to 350,000 after two weeks of bombing.

The key message Offenheiser wants to stress is that with the peace settlement underway, the needs of refugees do not end. Now they are facing the complex process of returning home. The returning Kosovars will need physical security. Aid agencies will need to assist families to resettle and rebuild houses that were burned down. No crops were planted this spring so there will be a food shortage. "There will be a lot to do before winter sets in," stressed Offenheiser.

The most useful help we here in America can give, says Offenheisser, is financial assistance. Money should go to five agenciesOxfam America which is focusing on water and sanitation problems; Save the Childrenwho work at reuniting families and easing the impact on children; CAREfood and camp management; Catholic Relief Servicesfood and resettlement; and Doctors Without Bordershealth care. For information on how to give to these different agencies, call Interaction at 202-667-8227 in Washington D.C.

Pop album to benefit Kosovars

On Monday, Offenheiser traveled to New York City, to receive $1,000,000 donated by SONY Record Corporation's EPIC Records, which is releasing an album by pop recording artists, Pearl Jam, Korn, Alanis Morrisette, the Indigo Girls and others, which is designed to support CARE, Oxfam and Doctors Without Borders. Even before the album's release the producers of the album "No Boundaries" have donated a substantial amount of its profit to helping the refugees of Kosovo, reports Offenheiser.
