In support of local charity organisation Mercy Relief, Qoo10 has set up a fundraising campaign for the Nepal Earthquake Relief 2015 fund.
Held from 8 May – 15 June 2015, Qoo10 users can make donations via MasterCard and VISA credit cards, PayPal, E-Nets or AXS. Besides donating cash, Qoo10 users can also donate to the cause by converting their accumulated loyalty points (Q points, Q stamps).
Mercy Relief’s rapid assessment team arrived on ground zero 48 hours after the 25 April earthquake devastated the country. Since 28 April 2015, the team have conducted 24 relief distribution operations and 8 medical missions servicing some of the remotest villages in the Kathmandu, Kavrepalanchok and Sindhupalchok districts - the country’s hardest hit areas.
In total, Mercy Relief have reached out to nearly 20,000 beneficiaries and treated some 700 patients. Mercy Relief’s relief distribution operation on 12th May was close to the epicenter of the second round of earthquakes which shocked the world. The team have completed their initial response for the acute relief phase and will be re-grouping back in Singapore to explore options for its post relief response.
Mercy Relief’s Chairman, Michael Tay, welcomes Qoo10 to the Singaporean NGO’s ranks of supporters.
“Since Mercy Relief’s Nepal Earthquake Relief fundraising campaign was launched, we have received immense support from both members of the public and corporate donors. Qoo10’s contribution towards our fundraising effort is significant. The online community has become a necessary avenue for donor outreach activities and assistance for Nepal’s earthquake-stricken communities” he says.
So far, the campaign has raised more than $15,000. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Mercy Relief, with administrative fees absorbed by Qoo10.
