Board of Directors
Mercy Relief is governed by a Board of Directors (BOD) comprising corporate and social leaders from diverse religious and racial backgrounds. The Board of Directors takes a non-executive role to advise and oversee the direction and governance of the Organisation. The Board meets quarterly and appoints a standing Executive Committee to advise the Chief Executive. Separate committees, made up of Board directors, are tasked to oversee the internal process systems of the various Divisions of the Executive. The Board Directors take turns to visit overseas project sites to better acquaint with and verify the projects implementation and impact on the beneficiaries. The Chairman of the Board serves a maximum of two 2-year terms. The Organisation is audited annually by external auditors, whose service term is limited to 5 years.
