From MR’s Chairman Mr T K Udairam’s speech:
“To the families and friends of Mercy Relief’s personnel…. On behalf of Mercy Relief, i thank you for your sacrifices in letting you love ones serve the humanitarian cause.
At our Stakeholders’ Nite and 5th Anniversary dinner last year, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said and i quote ” In relief operations, the lives of humanitarian workers are often put at risk when they enter a disaster site to help others. They may take some precautions, but aftershocks, landslides and water-borne diseases are common. I applaud Mercy Relief’s staff and volunteers for your courage, tenacity and compassion.”
