Advocating continuous humanitarian planning and preparedness
Disaster planning and preparedness not only saves lives, livelihoods and assets. Preparedness heightens awareness on response and recovery, which lessens the impact of a disaster and increases resilience.
For MERCY Malaysia, we advocate preparedness – of our teams and communities. Because we know, the future depends on what we do today.

We prepare communities to undergo disaster resilience and capacity-building programmes through the MERCY Malaysia Community-Based Disaster Risk Management Workshop (CBDRM). Appreciating that first responders of any disaster are community members themselves, modules conducted are jointly curated with respective communities and local authorities. MERCY Malaysia’s CBDRM workshops are continuously conducted across Malaysia.
MERCY Malaysia’s focus on impact-driven and long-lasting solutions.
Among one of MERCY Malaysia’s main efforts is on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, namely access to safe and clean water. Hence, water supply to communities is delivered among others through the construction of Gravity Feed System with piping network. The project which falls under the WASH programme aims to improve the health and socioeconomic well-being of the communities. It also intends to help reduce the incidence of water and sanitation-related diseases through the sustainability of safe water and proper sanitation.
The WASH programme is in line with MERCY Malaysia’s Humanitarian Development Nexus (HDN) mandate which aims to implement more impact-driven and long-lasting solutions.
Support MERCY Malaysia, where humanitarian work never ends.
