CXI Launched International Scholarship and Mercy Relief Fund

Goals and Objectives of CXI and ISMRF

A key goal of CXI is too establish goodwill between people of different nations and cultures through practical assistance to enhance the wellbeing of all.
Over the years, CXI has responded in providing financial and social support to poor international students and new immigrants through her friends and members. CXI has also and intends to continue providing international relief to those from different nations affected by floods, earthquakes and other disasters. The Fund will formalize the process of grants and scholarships 

Specifically, CXI through her members have supported students from the hill tribes in Thailand to study in the city and continue their education at the local universities. We have also supported poor students in practical provisions of housing, meals and grants while they are in Singapore. Students from China, Cambodia, Vietnam and Philippines have benefited from CXI contacts and connections, building strong international relationships.
International relief efforts thus far have been ad hoc in meeting needs of villagers and those who have suffered loss through floods, earthquakes, and other disasters like in the Philippines, India, Nepal and Indonesia. We have also assisted in providing food, masks and supplies to those affected by the Covid-19 lockdown in various countries.

 

Administration and Application of the Fund

Application for the International scholarship and mercy relief funding should be made in a clear and concise letter to the President, CXI,(tiongcxi@gmail.com)  stating the need, the duration of support and the intended outcome. The recommendation for decision will be made by the President and Treasurer and ratified by the CXI Council. The treasurer of CXI is tasked with tracking the support and funding providing an annual account and audit of the ISMRF Fund.

A brief report and pictorial update is required of the grantee, within a year of the administration of the ISMRF fund.
