Our Campaign Story

ends 21 Sep 2017, 11:59 PM

I was shocked how difficult it was for me to set up this campaign. It took me an hour to locate Mercy Relief (The leading Singaporean relief organization) and their campaign for South Asia, while I found dozens and dozens supporting the victims of Hurricane Harvey. 41 million people need help. Let's help Mercy Relief get it to them.

"Feared to be one of the worst regional humanitarian crises in years, the South Asia Floods have affected over 41 million people and left more than 1,200 dead.

In response to the escalating situation, Mercy Relief is launching a multi-country relief effort to reach out to survivors in Nepal, India and Bangladesh.

No donation is too small and every dollar contributes to saving lives.

About Campaign

With food shortages & water borne diseases on the rise, Mercy Relief will be distributing much needed supplies to help meet the needs of those impacted by the disaster.

Your help can go a long way, donate now.

Below is one of the many survivor stories from the ground.

Mr. Klaipeda Roy (48) is a farmer in the North Gopalpur Village in Bangladesh. Although the floods partially collapsed his home, he managed to elevate his rice seeds before the water rushed in. Luckily his seeds remained dry and ready to plant once the flood waters subside, however, not all farmers were so fortunate. Many villagers rely on their rice harvests to sustain their livelihood but due to the damage of over 600,000 hectares of land by the floods, they will need to obtain new seedlings and plant their fields from scratch.
