THE Singapore Red Cross (SRC) is responding to the devastating earthquake and tsunami that has struck Sulawesi, Indonesia, over the weekend by launching a public fundraising appeal, and in the first instance, pledged S$50,000 in humanitarian aid to support affected communities.
All donations to the Singapore Red Cross will go towards the purchase of relief items, such as first aid supplies, hygiene kits, water systems, jerry cans, tarpaulins, mosquito nets, blankets and sleeping mats for displaced survivors; and the longer-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
