Uniting for Cyclone Gaja SG

Update posted by Vaishnavi Naidu On Jan 12, 2019

Dear well-wishers,

The Uniting for Cyclone Gaja team has officially closed our fundraising drive wef 28 Dec 2018. We have received overwhelming support over the month and have hit well beyond our initial target. Combined with offline donations, the campaign has raised a total of SGD 3,300.

This has enabled us to extend our outreach beyond our initial plans of contributing to the relief efforts of the 3 villages. With the extra funds, we have now been able to also assist with the rebuilding the homes of 3 domestic helpers whose families had been displaced.

As illustrated in the following pictures, 225 blankets had been offered to families across these villages last month to protect them from the cold and 5kg of rice was offered per family for 125 families in these villages.

More updates are also on the way from other villages which have benefitted from this fundraising campaign. All new information updates received will be duly shared on this page.

The helpers who had spearheaded this fundraising initiative and their fellow villagers are extremely grateful for your support in this dire time of need. Thank you!

Dear all, thank you so much for your support thus far! This journey has taken us to meet many in Singapore who have been affected by this cyclone in more ways than one.

Thus, while running this fundraising drive to contribute directly to the affected families being helped by these three domestic workers in our support network, we have also come into contact with several other migrant workers who have been helping through similar means - i.e. directly distributing funds to family and friends back home who are providing disaster relief aid.

One such migrant worker is N Rengarajan who comes from the Pudukottai district, Nambamnati village and works in the construction sector in Singapore.





He is also an eloquent poet whose work has been featured in multiple platforms in Singapore and India, such as the Global Migrant Workers' Festival. He will soon be returning to his village to help with the Gaja cyclone relief efforts there on his own accord, and any contribution to our cause will expand the efforts rendered.

Thank you for once again for giving strength and courage to all who have been affected by this disaster. Your support will go a long way in touching their lives.

Love,

The Fundraising Team
