       The Haiyan Relief Chess Match is being organised to raise much needed funds to help the victims of the recent Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines. The people at Cheras Chess Academy and Kids for Chess Program have come together as citizens of this world to help alleviate some of the sufferings of these victims. 

       We are organizing a simultaneous chess match where anyone but especially the chess community will be able to participate in the chess match as well as make a donation to the Haiyan Relief Fund. The chess match will be held t the International Youth Centre in Cheras Kuala Lumpur, on Sunday the 8th of December. 

   
Anyone can make a donation to the Haiyan Relief through this Chess match.   The donors can (a) choose to play in the chess match,
                      (b) nominate someone else to play on their behalf, or 
                      (c) just be a donor and not play in it. 

    Let's make a difference. Your contribution, big or small, can make a difference to those who have lost nearly everything in this disaster.
