How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Headquartered in Singapore, Mercy Relief was established in 2003 to respond to human tragedies and disasters in Asia Pacific.
Today, we are a leading independent disaster relief agency in the region with dedicated leadership, capacity building expertise and an affiliate network operating across the entire disaster management cycle.
Mercy Relief provides emergency aid within 72 hours of an appeal in the aftermath of a disaster. Our longer-term sustainable development projects aim to uplift and empower communities in five key areas: water and sanitation, shelter, sustainable livelihoods, healthcare and education.
For the past decade, Mercy Relief has responded to more than 56 human tragedies with more than $32.5 million in relief across 24 countries. We have implemented more than 50 sustainable development initiatives and impacted an aggregate of over 2 million lives.
Disaster relief and sustainable development projects are at the core of Mercy Relief. Our first disaster response team was deployed in 2003 to the floods in North Sumatra, Indonesia. Since then, we have continued to work alongside survivors to restore lives and livelihoods, and to invest in communities throughout Asia to improve living standards.
At Mercy Relief, we draw on creative partnerships with other organisations to help us come up with better and more effective solutions to the challenges we face.
