It has been a typical year at Mercy Relief (MR) for 2010 with relief operations covering the Qinghai quake, Pakistan floods, Mentawai tsunami and Merapi eruptions (plus supporting relief operations in Haiti and Chile in cooperation with the UNCEF). Sustainable development projects ranging from water, sanitation, healthcare, livelihood and education, continue in Indonesia, China, the Philippines and Vietnam throughout.
At the 2nd World Humanitarian Day 2010, DPM Teo Chee Hean shared: “You are respected for the good work that you carry out, and have also established goodwill, confidence, trust and love between citizens of our Asian neighbours and Singapore … As a Singaporean-born-and-bred humanitarian NGO, Mercy Relief is one of Singapore’s success stories, having made important contributions both locally and in the region … For an organisation that has increased its outreach over the years, Mercy Relief is modestly housed at a HDB void deck. It is such modesty, frugality and pragmatism that have allowed you to win many supporters and friends over the years.”
DPM Teo’s compliments are as much yours as they are the Tribe’s. We are only able to attend to the less fortunate in the region because you cared for them.
