The ABCF Warchest is a program designed to send monthly checks to those Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War who have been receiving insufficient, little, or no financial support during their imprisonment. The Warchest program was initiated in November 1994 and sends money to Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War (PP/POW) via monthly checks.
