Abstract

Mercy Relief, a small disaster relief and sustainable development organisation, was set up as a charity in 2003. Based in Singapore, it started with small humanitarian projects in the region. This changed when a tsunami swept across the Indian Ocean on Boxing Day 2004, affecting many parts of South Asia and Southeast Asia. Mercy Relief was quickly drawn into a larger ecosystem of disaster relief operations, and took on a pivotal role in Singapore's tsunami relief aid process in Sumatra. Other disaster relief projects followed soon after. It also initiated a number of small developmental projects in crisis-prone areas as a risk reduction strategy for managing possible future crisis events.
