In 1950, Mr. Graham took his ministry to
radio with the broadcast of the weekly
"Hour of Decision" on the ABC Radio Net
work. The program, offering a message by
Mr. Graham or an associate evangelist, as
well as interviews with Christian newsma
kers, reports from the mission fronts and
inspirational music, continues to be
heard each week on hundreds of radio
stations around the world. A few years
later, making further use of the mass me

people. Hundreds of thousands of dollars,
have been disbursed to provide such
things as grain for drought stricken West
African countries, to rebuild a village in
India destroyed by a tidal wave, to, send
food .and medicine to earthquake victims
in Guatemala, and to help Vietnamese
boat people and Cambodian refugees in -Thailand.

given to the Fund goes to the needy, with
the Billy Graham Evangelistic Associa
