Singapore Red Cross commits S$62,400 to relief operations for Yunnan earthquake

The Singapore Red Cross (SRC) on Thursday (Aug 7) announced it is committing US$50,000 (S$62,400) to its relief operations for the Yunnan earthquake in China.

The contribution, which will be delivered by the Red Cross Society of China (RCSC), will provide survivors of the earthquake with immediate relief supplies including tents, family essential packs, amenity bags, food, water and medicine, SRC said. The 6.1-magnitude quake, which struck on Sunday, killed 589 people. 2,401 people were also injured and more than 20,000 people were affected.

Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General and CEO of SRC, said: “Rescue and relief efforts have been challenged by bouts of heavy rain and landslides in the past few days. Thousands of people remain vulnerable and we are working with RCSC to reach out to them as soon as possible.”

SRC said more than 100 Red Cross relief workers are working onsite to provide rescue services and relief distribution to the affected community in Yunnan.
