report Mercy Relief

Saturday, 5 February - The two disaster response teams deployed by Singaporean humanitarian NGO Mercy Relief (MR), have returned from Sri Lanka and the Philippines, having delivered more than S$50,000 worth of aid to the communities afflicted by large-scale flooding in both countries.

Relentless monsoon rains earlier in January had caused severe floods to inundate the eastern regions of Sri Lanka, with more than 40 lives claimed, around 400,000 forced to abandon their homes and more than a million people affected at the peak of floodwater levels.
