Mercy Relief

Headquartered in Singapore, Mercy Relief was established in 2003 to respond to human tragedies and disasters  across Asia Pacific. We provide emergency aid within 72 hours of an appeal in the aftermath of a disaster and implement long term post-disaster sustainable programs to uplift and empower communities in five key areas: water and sanitation, shelter, livelihoods, healthcare and education.

Since its inauguration, Mercy Relief has responded to 79 human tragedies with more than $36.1 million in relief across 25 countries. We have implemented more than 59 sustainable development initiatives and impacted an aggregate of over 2.1 million lives. Today, we are Singapore's leading independent disaster relief agency with dedicated leadership, capacity building expertise and an affiliate network operating across the entire disaster management cycle.

Disaster relief and sustainable development programs are at the core of Mercy Relief. Our first disaster response team was deployed in 2003 to attend to the floods in North Sumatra, Indonesia. Since then, we have continued to work alongside survivors to restore infrastructure and livelihoods, and continue to invest in communities throughout Asia Pacific to improve sustainability and preparedness. We draw on an established network of local ground partners and NGOs to implement creative solutions and surmount the difficulties and challenges we face in managing disaster relief programs. Mercy Relief has in place on-going projects focusing on water and sanitation, shelter, livelihood, healthcare and education in vulnerable communities.

Mercy Relief champions its cause of sustainability for vulnerable communities through social media, fund raising activities and events including Ground Zero Run for Humanity and Gift of Giving, speaking engagements and strategic partnerships with corporate sponsors and public donors.
