Mercy Relief, Singapore's leading independent disaster relief agency, is responding to Tropical Storm Megi which hit the Philippines on 10 April 2022.

Resulting floods and landslides have killed 212 people and displaced more than 800,000 residents. At least 2.2 million people have been affected by the cyclone as of 25 April 2022. A team from Mercy Relief departed for the Philippines on 26 April in response to the appeal made by our Philippines ground partner Citizens' Disaster Response Center (CDRC).

Over several distribution operations (RDOs), severely affected families in Leyte and Capiz will receive relief packs from Mercy Relief. Valued at close to S$80,000, Mercy Relief's immediate response includes relief items such as rice, hygiene kits, kitchen kits, sleeping mats and blankets. Local partners Leyte Center for Development, Inc (LCDE) and Panay Center for Disaster Response, Inc (PCDR) are also assisting with the distribution operations in Leyte and Capiz provinces respectively.

On 28 April, 650 households in Leyte received aid from Mercy Relief. Distribution operations in Capiz have been scheduled to take place in mid June.
