CLOZE 8: A Letter from Germany Mercy Relief's chief executive Hassan Ahmad said a letter from Germany gave encouragement to his staff and [1] showed that people do care. He was talking about a reader's response to The New Paper's report on Mercy Relief's efforts to help the refugees in the Swat Valley region of Pakistan. A Singaporean married to a German, Madam Tay, said in her letter [2] dated 16 Jun 2009, “I'm a regular reader of The New Paper. I just happened to read of the plight of the 70,000 pregnant women in Pakistani camps. I'm so worried for them... they must be well-looked after there because of their unborn babies. This has moved me that I would like to [3] donate this humble amount to the Pakistan Relief.” She sent $100 with the letter. Madam Tay's letter was a [4] pleasant surprise. Mr Hassan said, “People care, [5] no matter where they are.” He added, “Consequent to two reports by The New Paper and Berita Harian on the plight of the affected Pakistani civilians, Mercy Relief received a single cheque donation of $20,000 from an individual. That same day we received Madam Tay's donation from overseas.” Mercy Relief has [6] been helping with international disaster and humanitarian relief efforts since 2003. Its call for aid for those [7] affected / hit by the humanitarian crisis in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province, where an estimated 3 million people have been displaced, got a generous response, thanks in [8] part to the exposure given by the media, said Mr Hassan. “An organisation can try to market itself through its website, corporate video... but media reports are [9] deemed by the public to carry a greater degree of neutrality and objectivity,” he said. “The media, intended or not, is able to share and shape public [10] opinion/ sentiments on a cause.” Those who helped with the fund raising came from various sectors. Volunteers from a Buddhist temple, students and the Singapore Pakistani Association [11] participated in a one-day charity street collection. Armed with donation cans, little tots accompanied by adults combed Jurong East and Toa Payoh to [12] raise money for the crisis in Pakistan. Said the president of Poh Ern Shih temple, Mr Lee Boon Siong, “Our affected fellow men in Pakistan require all [13] support from the international community to help cushion the pain that they are going through. Mercy Relief has matured so rapidly in the last few years that they are now able to [14] respond quickly to disasters... irrespective of race, religion and political differences.” Those[15] keen to support the efforts can call Mercy Relief at 6332 6320. 1 4 7 10 13
