On behalf of the Singapore Red Cross (SRC), the A*STAR CSR Committee would like to call for your support for the recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake that devastated Turkey and Syria. Millions of people had been affected by the two devastating earthquakes and dozens of aftershocks that hit the Turkey-Syria border.
The Singapore Red Cross (SRC) is running a donation campaign to pledge humanitarian aid to the Turkish Red Crescent (TRC) and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) to directly support their ongoing relief efforts. Displaced families are in urgent need of shelter, safe drinking water and hygiene essentials. Your donation will go towards supporting the needs of those affected by the earthquakes, including emergency shelters, first aid and food.
(Note: Donations to overseas efforts are non tax-deductible. Receipts will only be issued upon request.)
