It takes a team of specialised aid workers to respond timely and effectively to humanitarian crises around the region as well as implement impactful developmental projects. When you donate, you help Mercy Relief defray their operational costs, powering their ability to scale as an organisation and strengthen their expertise on the field. Please note that all donations will be directed to MRs General Fund and will enjoy a tax deduction of 250 percent of the amount of the donation.
This October, in partnership with Mercy Relief and Kenneth Koh (The North Face Athlete & Singapore's Adventure Nomad), embark on an adventure through the flower scattered alpine meadows of the Langtang Valley and along the way discover the majestic landscapes of the Great Himalayan Range.
On April 25, 2015, a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal at 11:56am. Weeks later, a second tremor hit and obliterated the country. Langtang was tagged the 'worst-affected' village in Nepal. More than 300 people, including 43 foreigners, died when the tranquil Langtang valley was destroyed. Almost a year on, more than 100 bodies have yet to be recovered but the village is slowly crawling back to its feet. TCRP hopes to support the Nepali community by engaging local businesses and promoting tourism to the region through our adventure.
