Singapore Soka Association Supports Mercy Relief's Humanitarian Efforts

On October 18, 2009, at Singapore's Senja Soka Center, Singapore Soka Association (SSA) General Director Mr. Ong Bong Chai presented a check to Mercy Relief Vice Chairman Professor Abdul Wahab bin Abdul Rahman in the amount of S$25,292 (US$18,206). The donation was made in support of Mercy Relief's mission to aid victims of the recent earthquake on the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia.

Professor Rahman thanked SSA for their sincere contributions and spoke about how it would greatly help those affected by the earthquake.

SSA has been a consistent partner in support of Mercy Relief over the years, working hand-in-hand in responding to natural disasters and human tragedies in Asia, such as the Asian tsunami crisis in 2004 and the Sichuan Earthquake in 2008.
