Our story began in 1999, as war raged in Kosovo. Thousands were dying each day, and thousands more were being displaced. The dead included scores of women and children, executed without mercy. Something had to be done.
Moved by the plight of those suffering, our founder Tan Sri Dr. Jemilah Mahmood, a Malaysian Obstetrician-Gynecologist sought to offer her services voluntarily.
Finding no national organizations ready to support such international crises, she set up the Malaysian Medical Relief Society with a few like-minded individuals. A society better known today as MERCY Malaysia.
To date, our organization is registered under the Societies Act, and has grown to include over 500 members and 5000 registered volunteers. All of whom are ready to lend a helping hand wherever they are needed most.
“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough, we must do.”
