Funds Raised

During the acute relief phase of a disaster relief operation, Mercy Relief provides survivors with emergency supplies weighing between 5kg to 10kg. To get these relief packs, survivors living in remote areas may have to walk several hours to and from the relief distribution point. Similarly, Catalysts in the second category carried a relief pack of equal weight for 5km. These relief packs were then distributed to low income families in Singapore to mark Mercy Relief’s observance of World Food Day.

Mercy Relief is a Singaporean humanitarian organisation which implements both disaster relief and sustainable development programmes for the distressed, disadvantaged and destitute in Asia.

"We were fortunate to have haze-free skies. The inaugural Ground Zero - Run For Humanity 2015 was a success. I took part in the 5KM relief aid challenge and it was a saturday well spent. ”
