In 1920, the Irish in America organised an American Committee for Relief in Ireland (occasionally known as AmComRI) to provide aid to those who suffered losses during the War of Independence. To distribute aid, an Irish White Cross was set up the same year. In 1922 the Irish White Cross published a report detailing the locations where the money was spent, describing some of the hardships suffered by people and included testimonies from beneficiaries. The report is reproduced here in full, accompanied by extracts from the 1922 report by AmComRI including histories of AmComRI and the Irish White Cross and a breakdown on where finance was raised in the US, Canada and elsewhere in the Americas.
