Singapore, 30th May 2024 — Mercy Relief is deeply concerned about the escalating conflict in Rafah and the severe humanitarian crisis that is worsening. The ongoing offensive, including on a camp for internally displaced persons, has led to significant civilian casualties, exacerbating an already dire situation.

Our thoughts are with all families who have lost loved ones and those who are suffering. Mercy Relief stands ready to support relief efforts in Palestine.

Muhammad Ashik, Executive Director of MR, shed light on the complexity of delivering aid in an active conflict, saying, “The operation demands robust sensemaking of daily changing conditions, a deep sense of purpose to focus on the people whom we serve, and remarkable grit to persist in key activities that meet the interests of the affected while upholding good governance.”

We call on all Singaporeans to join us in this collective humanitarian aid through the “Hope for Gaza, West Bank & Palestine Refugees Fund”. Your contributions are crucial in helping every child, parent and elderly in this difficult conflict, providing essential relief and support.

Together, we can make a difference and bring relief to those in need.
