The CNRRA (Chinese National Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) was a Chinese government agency established by order of the Executive Yuan, 21 January 1945, for the purpose of administering postwar relief and rehabilitation in China. Supplies to the amount of $945,196,000 were requested from the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA). Plans covered direct emergency relief in liberated areas, work projects, and rehabilitation measures. Responsibility for administration of projects was with CNRRA, but experts and advisers from UNRRA participated. Through interference by civil war, the relief program was much restricted but continued active in areas under Nationalist control. Relief efforts by voluntary agencies, including the Mennonite Central Committee, were integrated as far as possible with the CNRRA program.
