SIF: Tsunami-Affected Communities Fund

From the Singapore International Foundation website:

In the aftermath of the tsunami disaster, the Singapore International Foundation is working on various fronts to respond to the needs of the communities affected by the massive destruction. SIF's focus is on the long-term rehabilitation and reconstruction process ahead, in helping communities build a life and future for themselves.

Towards this end, we have set up the Tsunami-Affected Communities Fund (TAC Fund) and our target is to raise a minimum of S$1.5 million. The funds collected will be channelled to re-building as well as disaster mitigation projects and used to provide sanitation, clean water housing, healthcare and community care. SIF plans to deploy over 80 teams of specialists, youth and grassroots volunteers with the requisite skills to work in the tsunami-affected areas.

The reconstruction phase is characterised by rising physical, medical, economic and social needs. We appeal to everyone to play a part in the re-building efforts, to help the affected communities pick up the pieces.
