In: Monde(s). - Vol. 2(2014), No. 6, p. 45-64

Abstract: This article examines the ideology and practices of an American humanitarian organization, the Near East Relief, whose history has been overlooked. It critically explores the reasons why the organization combined relief operations with more ambitious–and less successful–rehabilitation programs. It analyses the genesis of the creation of theNear East Foundation, an American philanthropic foundation that still exists today.
