The Singapore Government will contribute US$60,000 as seed money to support the Singapore Red Cross (SRC)’s public fundraising to aid disaster relief and recovery efforts in Malaysia and the Philippines. The floods in Malaysia and Typhoon Rai in the Philippines have resulted in the loss of many lives and widespread destruction of property, causing hardship and suffering to many communities. The contribution by the Singapore Government will supplement the SRC’s pledges of US$50,000 each to the Malaysian Red Crescent and Philippine Red Cross.
As a close friend and fellow ASEAN Member State, Singapore stands by Malaysia and the Philippines during this difficult time.
