Muslim community in Singapore raises S$98,216 for South India flood victims The donations, which were handed to humanitarian group Mercy Relief, were collected at all 69 mosques in Singapore as well as at the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore. Posted 15 Jan 2016 19:05 ...SINGAPORE: The Muslim community in Singapore has raised S$98,216 for the victims of floods in South India in November and December 2015, Rahmatan Lil Alamin Foundation (RLAF) announced on Friday (Jan 15). In early December, incessant rains of record-breaking levels in India triggered flooding and widespread damage in multiple areas, including the city of Chennai. At least 347 people died as a result of the floods caused by heavy monsoon rains and up to 1.8 million people were displaced. RLAF said the donations were collected at all 69 mosques in Singapore as well as at the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) from Dec 18 to Dec 24, 2015. A cheque for the final amount was handed over to Mercy Relief Singapore on Friday, RLAF said. Mercy Relief had earlier launched a public appeal for funds to help in disaster relief efforts in South India. The humanitarian organisation is currently in Chennai to conduct an assessment of the community's recovery needs in the worst flood-affected districts in Cuddalore and Kanchipuram and of plans for rehabilitation programmes, which will focus on livelihood recovery to build better preparedness and more resilient communities, RLAF said in the release. Chairman of the RLAF Mr Po’ad Mattar said: “We would like to thank the Singapore Muslim community and the mosques in Singapore for their generous donation. We hope that this small gift will help to relief some of the suffering of the victims in the Chennai floods." “We are happy that our humble effort has enabled Mercy Relief to undertake urgent relief work in the affected area. It is an opportunity for us focus our efforts and show compassion to those in need, regardless of their faith or creed," he added. RLAF, which is Arabic for "Blessings-To-All", was set up by Muis in 2005, and provides funds and grants for humanitarian and community development initiatives. Other Singapore organisations that have recently stepped forward to offer aid to victims of the floods include Vasantham and Oli FM and the Singapore Red Cross. - CNA/mz
