Mercy Relief Ground Zero Run

During September, Swisspro employees and friends joined to support Mercy Relief's Ground Zero campaign. Headquartered in Singapore, Mercy Relief was established in 2003 to respond to human tragedies and disasters in Asia Pacific.

Mercy Relief provides emergency aid within 72 hours of an appeal in the aftermath of a disaster. Their longer-term sustainable development programmes aim to uplift and empower communities in five key areas: water and sanitation, shelter, sustainable livelihoods, healthcare and education.

Swisspro's goal was to circumnavigate Singapore with 26 runners, each one running a distance of 5 km. Together we reached this goal plus with the help of supporters, we were able to fundraise and contribute $ 3,180 to Mercy Relief !

We thank everyone involved and are convinced that our donation helps to provide families in need and emergency situations with essential goods.
