The organizers of Rose Charities also pay tribute and gratitude to the professional women volunteers (nurses, physicians, counselors, logisticians etc) who have contributed over 50% of involvement, organization and sustainability of emergency relief and ‘post-relief’ operations Rose Charities and close partners AMDA have played over the years. Their magnificent work has helped tens of thousands of victims in many parts of the globe.

Rose Charities Malaysia, Singapore, HelpAge Thailand and Thai Elderly Association cooperating to bring relief elderly caught up in Thai floods
Thai floods update: Rose Charities Malaysia, joining with Rose Charities Singapore, HelpAge, Thailand and the Thai Elderly Association to plan further joint flood relief specifically for the elderly victims of the flood areas. Mr Lawrence Cheah of Rose Charities Malaysia, and also Rose Charities International Council Chair, has initiated this joint initiative through his networking contacts.
Rose Charities Singapore Chair Christina Leong writes.. “Rose Charities Singapore has established a transport link into Thailand. Through a network of volunteers, friends and affiliates, emergency supplies are being purchased in neigbouring countries and transported to the areas in need.
Donations in the past 3 days alone have enabled us to purchase 1000 tins of milk power which will be sent to babies in evacuation centers through local Thai TV station ThaiTV3.
We are now sending out the call for canned food for those stranded at the flooded sites.
For SGD3.00 / RM7.20, the flood victims will get a set of the following items:
1. Cinta Sardine in tomato sauce at RM2.75/425g/can (retail is RM3.25/can)
2. Rex Baked beans in tomato sauce at 1.95/425g/can (retail is RM2.25/can)
3. ‘Xiang Xiang’ brand crackers abt 420gm (similar to Ping Pong brand) RM2.50/pack
Donations are needed to assist program and will be very gratefully received.
As always with Rose Charities, the program is run 100% by unpaid volunteers so every cent donated goes…
Thailand has been suffering the worst flooding in living memory. Over 300 people have died and thousands are homeless. Around a third of the entire country has been affected. In some areas food, especially for babies and the elderly with special needs is scarce. Rose Charities relief efforts have been spearheaded by the newly formed Rose Charities Singapore but in conjunction with Rose Charities Malaysia.
Other Rose Charities organizations worldwide are supporting through their efforts. Emergency supplies are being donated and purchased both through contacts on the ground in Thailand as well as in those neigbouring countries, and transported to the areas in need.
Donations are needed to assist program and will be very gratefully received. As always with Rose Charities , the program is volunteer run so every cent donated will go to work in the disaster area for those in need. To donate, please see the donation pages of the various Rose Charities organization websites (for framework of the Rose network and Rose sites in other countries (click) ).
