Sale Of Health Stamps.
Below is a specimen copy of the “Health” stamp which has been issued this year in continuation of the anti-tuberculosis campaign inaugurated in 1929.
The stamp is of the 2d. denomination, 1d. being for postage and 1d. for health. As in previous years, the stamps will be on sale until the 28th February, 1933.
The purpose of the campaign is to raise funds to assist in the establishment and maintenance of children's health camps in New Zealand. The Health Camp movement, although described as a first line attack on incipient tuberculosis, does not handle the actual tuberculosis patient. Rather does it aim to remedy the physical defects or restore the lowered bodily resistance which results from under-nourishment—a condition increasingly prevalent in these days of unemployment. It is hoped that all members of the community will assist in supporting this worthy object to the best of their ability.page 7
