Singapore Red Cross launches public appeal, extends emergency relief to affected communities

Singapore, 17 August 2018 - In response to the devastation caused by torrential rain and monsoon floods in India, Singapore Red Cross (SRC) has launched a public fundraising appeal and will be pledging S$50,000 in humanitarian aid in the first instance to affected flood-ravaged areas in southern India, in particular, Kerala.

The donations will fund the purchase and distribution of relief items which are likely to include:

- First aid support

- Water and sanitation services

- Tarpaulin sheets for shelter

- Mosquito nets

- Kitchen utensils

- Solar lanterns

- Bed sheets and clothing

SRC donation will also facilitate critical disaster relief and recovery efforts.

Already in contact with the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS), SRC will dispatch a four-person advance team early next week to deliver critical relief supplies and conduct ground assessments to determine urgent and mid-term needs.
