The Haiyan Relief 
Chess Match
(8 December)

       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. 

       With the help of TheSun newspapers, Mercy Malaysia, friends and the chess community, we are organizing a simultaneous chess match where we will raise money for the victims. All money raised through this match will be channelled to these unfortunate people. 

 As of 1 December 2013, here are the latest statistics: 
a) some 18,016 people (4,352 families) have been displaced,
b)
the number of injured stand at 26,136,
c) the number of people still missing is now at 1,759, & 
c) the number of confirmed dead stand at 5,632.

 And for donations, TheSun newspapers has raised around RM280,000. Of this amount, the Haiyan Relief Chess match has contributed RM3,100.
