About Event

Give Water. Save Lives.

Water is the foundation of life. It means health, education and income. With it, people can cook, drink, clean, bathe and so forth.

Unfortunately, in the developing world, finding a reliable source of clean water is often time consuming and expensive, thus limiting a person's true potential.

You can change that.

Who we are

Mercy Relief was launched in 2003 as Singapore's only homegrown humanitarian organization, implementing both disaster relief and sustainable development programmes. Since then, we have reached more than 20 countries in Asia, including Cambodia, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Phillipines and Laos. We’ve maintained a 72-hour response period providing immediate relief items such as clean water and food, as well as longer-term necessities comprising shelter and medicine to disaster victims.

What we need

In conjunction with World Water Day on March 22, Mercy Relief hopes to raise $20,000, between March-April, to support its disaster relief as well as sustainable development programmes. 

Your donation will go into our general funds to support such programmes.


Mercy Relief’s aid programmes include providing timely and effective assistance to disaster-stricken communities; and longer-term development projects to uplift the lives of the impoverished and disadvantaged, focusing on water & sanitation, shelter, sustainable livelihoods, healthcare and education.
Examples of our water and sanitation projects and innovations for disaster relief and sustainable development programmes are:

Mercy Relief Products

1) PurHeart Bottles

 15L of clean water per hour

These lightweight water treatment bottles convert contaminated water – from sources like ponds, rivers, groundwater and rain – into potable water fit for immediate consumption.

2) PurHeart Family Water Filters

2L of clean water per hour

Targeted at households, this gravity-driven water filter system is designed with low cost and easy maintenance in mind.

3) PedalPure Units

 700L of clean water per hour

These portable pedal-powered water filters are equipped with wheels and brakes, and can easily reach disaster victims in remote areas. Following the recent Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013, six PedalPure units were deployed in four communities, providing clean drinking water to 10,500 victims within the first month.

4) Water projects across Southeast Asia


This includes the construction of irrigation channels, building rain-harvesting systems or digging wells. For 2014, Mercy Relief has also targets to implement such water projects in Myanmar, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Mercy Relief relies on the goodwill of the public to help its vital operations. No amount is too small to make a difference!


Thank you for your kind support.
