Jet Protocol Lists on AscendEX

Singapore, Oct. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AscendEX is thrilled to announce the listing of the Jet Protocol token (JET) under the trading pair JET/USDT on Oct. 14 at 1 p.m. UTC. To celebrate the listing of JET, AscendEX will host two separate auctions that will take place simultaneously on October 13 between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. UTC.

Jet Protocol will be launched as an open-source, non-custodial, borrowing and lending protocol on the Solana Blockchain. It engineers new possibilities for capital efficiency, performance, and scalability. Jet allows users to participate in lending pools where they deposit supported tokens to receive interest, or “yield” over time, as a participation incentive. Those deposits remain in a pool used for issuing loans to other users for as long as the assets remain delegated.

Jet believes that borrowing and lending protocols are integral to the DeFi ecosystem. The decision to build on Solana was based on its unmatched transaction speed and low fees. The Solana integration will allow Jet to contribute and grow on-chain DeFi lending. The project anticipates a gradual integration of broader interest and more efficient trading. In addition to lending, Jet will introduce interest rate products and secondary markets on Serum, facilitating ongoing, community-driven, lending product research and development. Through these methods, Jet makes it easy for users to earn interest with their JET tokens.

Jet is planning to launch with a dedicated governance system that leverages their founding team’s unique and extensive experience in protocol governance. This governance-oriented approach aims to work with the community to set a clear precedent toward how the Protocol will operate. Jet will innovate on tested governance models from existing protocols while focusing on community ownership and engagement. The most important aspect of this approach is to build an inclusive community to research, design, and implement useful lending products. So, the token holders will have a say in the future of the platform. This focus on community is core to Jet’s mission of bringing DeFi protocols into the mainstream.

Prior to a successful mainnet launch this week, Jet recently completed a follow-on funding round that included AscendEX among other partners bringing in a total of $6.8mm to the project. This latest fundraise has highlighted the strong support for Jet from a variety of stakeholders including AscendEX.

Ronnie Coleman Celebrates the 10th Anniversary of His Business With the Launch of His Heavily Anticipated Fitness App Yeah Buddy™

Always up for the challenge, entrepreneur and 8x Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman makes a bold leap from supplements into tech with Yeah Buddy™: the groundbreaking, fully integrated, and immersive fitness app.

LAKE MARY, Fla., Oct. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Some people might say it’s impossible for a supplement company to design a top-tier fitness app from the ground up, but those people would not be Ronnie Coleman. The 8X Mr. Olympia winner has never backed down in the face of adversity, and this challenge was no different. Ronnie saw a need for a fully integrated fitness app and decided to expand his business empire to pursue this vision. After 18 months of work and the input of over 50 experts worldwide, the app is finally here and ready to revolutionize how people get fit.

The driving force behind Yeah Buddy™ is simplifying fitness. It includes everything you need to manage your fitness journey in a single app. According to Ronnie, “Yeah Buddy™ guides you through the complete fitness experience.” When asked if he was worried about shifting focus from supplements to tech, RCSS Owner Ronnie Coleman had this to say: “I never back down from a challenge, and if technology can make getting in shape more attainable, then I’m all for it.”

The evolution of marketing starts with engagement. The most unique feature of Yeah Buddy™ is the use of augmented reality technology that includes both Ronnie and his products. Before Yeah Buddy™ if you wanted to flex next to Ronnie Coleman in his prime, you would have needed a time machine. Now, thanks to the cutting-edge AR, you can pose with Ronnie after every workout and share it directly on your social feed. Artists and designers from across the world spent months carefully creating six iconic characters: Ronnie Cop, King Ronnie, Shut up and Squat Ronnie, Unbelievable Ronnie, Stage Ronnie, and Coleman Athletic Ronnie. Each character dances, motivates, works out, poses for photos, and flexes. While AR is still in the infancy stages, RCSS has pioneered the way forward with incredible and never-before-seen detail with precise movements, measurements, and sequenced audio.

Ronnie liked his characters so much that he expanded the concept to his very own supplements. The Yeah Buddy™ AR technology brings all of Ronnie’s products to life, providing a fun and informative experience for consumers.

After 40 years of working out, Ronnie finally shares all his secrets with his in-app training program. Ronnie and his hand-selected personal fitness coaches have individually filmed and designed several workout programs created to push you into becoming the best version of yourself. Yeah Buddy™ uses a sophisticated algorithm to match you with the perfect trainer and regimen for a low monthly fee. You can even take it one step further and pair your training with our home delivery meal plan designed by Ronnie and made by Icon Meals.

As the king of fitness apps, several vital features set Yeah Buddy™ above its competitors. It’s fully integrated: it provides a unique, engaging, immersive experience in one convenient, user-friendly app that everyone can use. Yeah Buddy™ can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Google Play. The app is free, but the hustle is sold separately.

Webtel.mobi Clarifies the Differences Between Its TUV Digital Currency and Cryptocurrencies

WM’s describes the differences between its TUV Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrencies; which render them as two completely different and unrelated instruments catering for very different and unrelated markets.


WM’s describes the differences between its TUV Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrencies; which render them as two completely different and unrelated instruments catering for very different and unrelated markets.

NEW YORK and ST PETER PORT, Guernsey, Oct. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In response to multiple enquiries received by Webtel.mobi (“WM”) regarding its TUV Digital Currency and its relationship to Cryptocurrencies, the following clarification on the differences between Cryptocurrencies and the TUV Digital Currency, has been provided by WM.

Cryptocurrencies are not currencies in anything but name. Rather, they are Retail Speculative Commodities.

That is, they are Retail Commodities with no inherent value at all in, and of, themselves, other than a perception, among a limited group of adherents, that they have value (i.e., like the stamp-swapping market).

For Commodities with a baseline characteristic that their inherent value is zero; as soon as the perception of their value fails (due to regulatory requirements or introduction of a product that cancels out their perceived utility) their value returns to zero.

They are Speculative because they are, chiefly, acquired by persons with the hope their value will increase, and people will make money from them. However, as to where the value lies – it should be noted that speculative acquisition of Cryptocurrencies is not predicated upon how much more (crypto)coins one will gain from a rise price rise – but by how many dollars one will gain from a price rise. That is, even their adherents use Cryptocurrencies as a way to gain more money – which they see as the ultimate store of value.

The establishment of the price or value of Cryptocurrencies is driven solely by the fact there will only ever be a limited number of coins “mined” (made). This is the pure application of the principle of “Artificial Scarcity”. Artificial Scarcity is a term denoting specific characteristics – the details of which can be found online (or in the ‘Resources’ section of this article).

The variation in speculative value is driven by application of the principle of “Artificial Demand” – also a term denoting specific characteristics that can be found in an online search (or also in the ‘Resources’ section of this article). That is, its rise or fall in value is due (primarily) to media exposure usually geared towards advertising the potential for, and of, the gain of more money by speculative means – not due to any inherent quality of use or utility.

Due to the very principle that causes their perception of value to arise. (Artificial Scarcity), Cryptocurrencies can never be used in anything other than a limited “collectors” market.

As an example, if one takes the most successful Cryptocurrency that exists, applies a generous stable value to its total coin value – from the very first one of its coins mined to the very last one in its limited range – of USD 50 000.00, due to the limited number that will ever be “mined” (made), the total value of all of these coins in circulation will only be just over USD 1 Trillion (and, to be generous, one can even double, triple or multiply that number times 10).

However, just the annual settlement requirements in Gross Payments for Global FX requires a currency pool of USD 4 862 Trillion – and there are several markets that have a similar or larger annual volume.

This example demonstrates that the total value that can ever exist of the total number of (artificially made scarce) Cryptocurrency coins in circulation is so tiny and miniscule in comparison, that the market for Cryptocurrencies can never even be considered as being anything other than that which it is.

That is, a limited market of collectors and speculators, who have an interest in speculating – whether it be in the production / marketing / transactions / sale / acquisition roles – with a specific Retail Speculative Commodity – whether that commodity be stamps, Cryptocurrencies or any of the various and multiple other such items that are held as being of value by adherents.

To its adherents and those who engage in speculative trading with it, a Cryptocurrency’s perceived value will be X – until the perception of its value is lost, whereupon it baseline value will return to zero. Outside of the circle of adherents and speculators, its value will always be zero.

WM’s TUV Digital Currency
WM’s TUV Digital Currency is not itself a Digital Currency. It is rather a Digital vehicle for any currency or currencies.

The TUV itself is an instrument that digitally represents the value in a specific currency, of which 100% reserves of that specific currency are held in a regulated bank account.

The currency of which the TUV represents value can be converted to any other currency – whereupon the TUV will be the Digital vehicle for the currency and value that it has been converted to.

Consequently, a TUV is, simultaneously:

  1. Not a de-jure currency.
  2. Is equal to the specific currency that it holds the value for.
  3. Can be converted to any World Reserve Currency or other WM Platform currency.

As such, it is none of, any of and all of the World Reserve Currencies and WM Platform Currencies, all at the same time.

More details of the TUV’s characteristics can be viewed from the “TUV Characteristics” link in the Resources Section of this article. However, a brief top-level view of some of the characteristics of the TUV Digital Currency – and its differences to a Cryptocurrency – is listed below:’

  • The company providing the TUV – and the TUV – function from within the telephony regulatory environment, with the TUV being a dual-use Telephony-Support product, the added functionality of which is brought about by the Artificial Intelligence Complex Adaptive System that powers the WM Platform.
  • The TUV is not a speculative instrument – rather a 100%-backed Digital representation of the currency for which it is valid.
  • The currency reserves that back a TUV can be refunded on demand to the regulated bank account of its owner (subject to standard international KYC and AML requirements) for the provision of source of funds / transaction type if the owner received a TUV in a transfer as opposed to loading the funds (“Stored Credit” for it himself / herself).
  • A TUV is a Digital Currency equivalent providing global transferability, acceptability, redeemability, convertibility between currencies, convertibility back to its value currency and all other characteristics of currency or money.
  • A TUV possesses the utility and ease of use of both cash and digital currency combined, while having security, usability, transferability, and other characteristics that are superior to both cash and digital currency.
  • A TUV permanently retains its stable value in respect of the currency that it is valued in, and provides a hedge against currency depreciation or inflation due to it being able to be converted to another currency at any time.
  • A TUV is free to acquire and to utilize.
  • In the near future, the Secured (gold-backed) TUVs will be able to be redeemed either for the amount of currency for which they are valued, or by the physical gold which they are backed by (details of the Secured TUV are in the resources section of this article).

In Summary, a TUV Digital Currency bears no resemblance to or relationship with a Cryptocurrency – other than the basic elements of Cryptocurrency Blockchain, Distributed Ledger and Private Keys are also part of the TUVs’ security structures. However, these three elements are – for the TUV – very basic security elements, and are far surpassed by dozens of personal, system, processes, and other additional security and structural attributes.

Webtel.mobi Describes Impassable Barriers to Proposed CBDC Creation – Already Transcended by Its TUV Digital Currency

WM’s TUV Digital Currency had to cater for, and transcend, thousands of requirements to be a fully operational Global Digital Currency. Proposed CBDCs will find it difficult to do so.

WEBTEL.MOBI DESCRIBES IMPASSABLE BARRIERS TO PROPOSED CBDC CREATION – ALREADY TRANSCENDED BY ITS TUV DIGITAL CURRENCYWM’s TUV Digital Currency had to cater for, and transcend, thousands of requirements to be a fully operational Global Digital Currency. Proposed CBDCs will find it difficult to do so.

NEW YORK and ST PETER PORT, Guernsey, Oct. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In response to multiple enquiries received by Webtel.mobi (“WM”) regarding its TUV Digital Currency and its relationship to proposed Central Bank Digital Currencies (“CBDCs”), the following clarification is provided on WM’s views of CBDCs and its TUV Digital Currency.

Overview in respect of proposed CBDCs
Central Bank Digital Money already exists – and has existed for decades. The vast majority of money created by Central Banks is created in Digital format and provided to Commercial Banks and other recipients in that format (i.e., not in physical form).

Similarly, a form of Central Bank Digital Money for exchange between countries (i.e., between Central Banks utilizing different currencies) already exists in “Special Drawing Rights” or SDR instrument – curated by the International Monetary Fund. This SDR instrument is a basket of currencies – in Digital format – that can be provided to Central Banks of countries under specific circumstances. (information on SDRs appears in the ‘Resources’ section of this article).

A primary question re: CBDC creation is therefore: what are its adherents trying to create and why – because Central Bank Digital Money already exists?

Among entities currently trying to create a CBDC, there are varying definitions of what it would comprise, and there are two types of CBDC that would be created.

The first variation is a “Wholesale CBDC” – for use between Central Banks. The purpose for such an instrument has yet to be clearly and coherently articulated, because as Central Bank Digital Money already exists, has existed for decades, and performs its functions adequately, it is unclear what a replication thereof in another form would achieve. This variation of proposed CBDC will therefore not be discussed in this article.

Retail CBDCs
The second variation is a “Retail CBDC”, which would be Central Bank issued Digital Money issued to, accessible to, and usable by the public. Notwithstanding that the requirement for, or constructive purpose of, such a Retail CBDC has yet to be clearly or coherently defined, the desire to create one does not account for the extreme dangers they will create for national or international economic stability – some of which are as follow:

Disintermediation of Commercial Banks
Central Banks issue of money to the public would – as a matter of certainty – lead to partial or significant disintermediation of Commercial Banks. This means the role of Commercial Banks in creating money (credit) and acting as infrastructural pillars for the storage and distribution of money nationally and internationally would be affected – with nothing to replace it. Such an event would introduce instability into a system that – whatever its flaws may be – is the only currently globally functioning system, specifically constructed over centuries, to attend to the national and international creation of money (credit) and for national and international storage and distribution of money. To disrupt this infrastructural pillar without the means to immediately replace it, would be self-inflicted pain of the greatest order to national economies and the global economic system. As there is no infrastructure with which to replace it (other than nationalization of the Commercial Banking system), there appears to be no well-though-through purpose in doing this, or strategy to cope with the consequences of doing this. Moreover, if a hybrid of Central Banks issuing money simultaneously with Commercial banks doing so, how could Commercial banks ever compete with the Central bank that creates money and sets interest rates and other rates? They could not – and who would hear their cases against unfair competition – as the Central Bank or entities reporting to it, or reliant on it, are usually arbiters in such cases? Such a situation possesses – it seems – a great deal of potential for instability and chaos without any articulation – to date – on the advantages such a situation would bring about, and why and how this would occur.

Conflation of Personal Debt with National Debt
If central banks were to transact directly with the public (its clients), requirements for money (credit) creation would arise. This, in turn, means the Central bank would become the holders of the debt of its clients. However, how would that debt be classified in terms of National Debt? Would the population of a country then become de-facto responsible for the private debt of other citizens? How would the value of the national currency be affected if the Central Bank of a country was saddled directly with the private debt of citizens – instead of it being rather the Lender of Last Resort to Commercial Banks that customarily deal with matters of private debt? No satisfactory or coherent articulation of this quandary re: proposed Retail CBDCs has yet been articulated by its proponents.

Strategic Vulnerability of Currencies and Economies
Generally speaking, persons functioning at senior levels of knowledge and competence in the fields of Economics and Finance have a lack of expert knowledge in high-level Tech and IT matters. Similarly, people who are competent in respect of high-level Tech and IT matters have a corresponding lack of expert knowledge in Geopolitics, Economics and Finance. This leads to construct proposals being put forward that will – if followed – leave a country’s currency and economy open to Strategic Vulnerability in respect of proposed Retail CBDCs. One of these is the proposed use of “Tokens” to ensure security. However, if the Retail CBDC is to be convertible into other currencies, unless a Central Bank is to maintain extraordinary Foreign Exchange Reserves itself (and deplete them on retail or public transactions), it will be necessary for the Retail CBDC to be convertible into other currency Retail CBDCs via an intermediary organization or by other Central Banks. This will entail the absolute requirement to share details of the currency’s tokenized structure with the intermediary organization or other central banks to prevent Digital Counterfeiting. However, the very requirement to share this information to prevent Digital Counterfeiting increases the means one has to provide information that can result in Digital Counterfeiting by any bad actor. Digitally Counterfeited currency is absolutely indistinguishable from non-counterfeited Digital Currency, other than via a process that will make the retail free-flow of the currency impossible (meaning that it cannot act as a retail currency). Consequently, current efforts that focus on a “Tokenized” Retail CBDC are doomed to failure before they are even created.

Who currently has a CBDCs as they are currently defined
Currently, no country or entity has a CBDC as they are currently proposed. Although China and the Bahamas are touted as having CBDCs, this is not correct. What those two countries have are not Central Bank Digital Currencies (“CBDCs”). What they have are Central Bank Digital Payment Systems (“CBDPS”). This is why they could only test them in transactions between the public and merchant – using payment terminals. A CBDPS is not a CBDC as currently proposed or envisaged. It can only be used for payments. All that it is, is a central bank version of the exiting MasterCard, Visa, and similar Digital Payment Systems. The “Sand Dollar” of the Bahamas actually runs off MasterCard’s infrastructure – so is really only a whitelabeled version of MasterCard Digital Payments. No country has – or is likely to ever have – a CBDC as currently proposed, due to the overriding factor that no CBDC as currently envisaged can ever function without an Global Exchange Mechanism for them. A Global Exchange Mechanism does not exist and will in all likelihood – never exist.

The requirement for a Global Exchange Mechanism for CBDCs
For Retail CBDCs, as currently proposed, to function, it would be necessary for the possibility of free exchange and/or convertibility between varying currency CBDCs. To do that, one would need to have a Global Exchange Mechanism to facilitate and carry out the conversion. Notwithstanding this would require sharing of proprietary Tokenization data (which can never in fact be exchanged) with the entities running the Global Exchange Mechanism, it would also require international consensus between countries (especially Major Powers) as to where the Global Exchange Mechanism would be located. Who would manage it? according to what rules? what would the rates and prices be? etc. There is a long list of considerations. However, how would it be possible for the majority of countries – or at least the major Powers – to reach consensus? Between them – as clearly demonstrated – geopolitical Rivalries prevent any such cooperation. Whether it is the constant vetoing of one side by another in the UN Security Council, Trade Wars, threats, and agitation in respect of various parts of the world, proxy wars and the like – it is abundantly clear that geopolitical Rivalries will never disappear. Moreover, it then follows that in respect of a proposed Global Exchange Mechanism, one side will never give in to the other on decisions such as an entity’s location, management, rules, fees, costs, and other requirements. Consequently, as a Global Exchange mechanism is required to exist before CBDCs can be structured to act and function within its defined structures and processes – and as such a Global Exchange Mechanism does not exist and probably will never exist – the creation of CBDCs is rendered absolutely moot. This is because development of one will be like having a cart without a horse. Of no use to anyone at all.

Webtel.mobi’s TUV Digital Currency
When WM was creating its TUV Digital Currencies and the Global Exchange Mechanism and processes for it, the considerations listed in the preceding parts of this article were only a few of the many (thousands of) considerations required to develop a fully-functional and global digital currency, valid in and for all countries and currencies. It is necessary to attend to these many (thousands of) requirements, and the most important elements before one begins (considerations absent from the proposed CBDCs debates).
What must be addressed before the practical creation process are those relating to Geopolitics, Geostrategy, Balances of Power and the requirements for the maintenance of Global Stability. These were all addressed. WM’s TUV Digital Currency has extreme security features built into it – that are unique to each TUV. They include security features in the TUVs themselves, in their creation, transfer and redemption processes, in constant monitoring of the TUVs by the Artificial Intelligence System for multiple events. They are numerous to describe. Some of them can be seen in the “TUV Characteristics” in the Resources section of this article.

WM’s TUV provides full Global acquisition, storage, transfer, payment, Convertibility between currencies, convertibility back to a Fiat currency, return to bank accounts and various other essential requirements for a functional Global Digital Currency. None of these are theoretical, aspired-to or hoped-for characteristics. WM’s TUV Digital Currency was – after the years taken to initially create it and its Global Exchange Mechanism – fully tested and confirmed in years nine of global operations with WM’s Platform 1, prior to the creation of Platform 2 that incorporates lessons learned during the operational testing.

WM’S TUV is the world’s first and only fully functioning Digital Multicurrency in a format that produces all of the unique characteristics that it hold. These characteristics not only already also (safely) cater for the currently proposed requirements of both Wholesale CBDCs and Retail CBDCs, they supersede these requirements exponentially.

Workers Feel More Trusted and Motivated Thanks to Hybrid Working

Research shows office workers’ professional lives have improved since gaining greater autonomy over their working week

Kadence Logo

Kadence Logo

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New research* from Kadence (formerly Chargifi) has revealed that after a year of flexible working, almost two-thirds of US and UK office workers (62%) now feel more trusted to do their job effectively. Of those workers, half also feel more motivated to do a better quality job (51%) and go the extra mile (48%) thanks to their new working arrangements.

Data from future of work specialist Kadence suggests employees are working more productively and efficiently thanks to the greater flexibility of time and place they’ve experienced outside of the traditional office. More than six in 10 workers said they feel an increased sense of trust because they’re not micromanaged as much as before the pandemic (64%) and are more free to do their work in a time that suits them best (63%).

As workers embrace hybrid and flexible approaches to work, businesses need to support their staff to foster an appropriate work-life balance. Of the 2,000 workers surveyed, close to three-quarters (74%) reported an increase in their use of online communication tools, not only during their contracted working hours but outside of them too (71%).

31% have found that the prolonged use of these tools leaves them with less desire to socialise with friends and family after work, and makes it harder to communicate in real life.

True hybrid working, which strikes the right balance between remote and face-to-face time, could help to retain the productivity benefits of being at home, while tackling the habits that lead to burnout, like the overuse of technology. In fact, over half of workers said they would prefer face-to-face meetings at least once a week (51%), and would rather have them in the office (52%). Having the tools to find and book meeting spaces easily was also a priority (40%).

Dan Bladen, CEO and founder of Kadence comments: “It’s clear that a culture of trust is needed for businesses and individuals to thrive as we shift to hybrid ways of working. Employers must move beyond physical location and shape the future of work with employee experience in mind, ensuring it’s easy to coordinate remote and in-person time and that staff have resources tailored to their needs. 

“As offices open up, business owners should pay attention to the evolving needs and behaviours of their employees to understand how individuals prefer to work and where they flourish, so they can create a supportive hybrid environment. This also means encouraging a balance, where employees work productively but also know when to stop, to prevent burnout. 

“The pandemic proved that it’s possible for workers to be productive anywhere. Now it’s up to businesses to design work around their people, maintaining the flexibility they’ve become accustomed to, and enabling them to get the best work done, wherever they choose.”

Mercy Malaysia activates Afghanistan Humanitarian Response Plan

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 8 — MERCY Malaysia has activated its Afghanistan Humanitarian Response Plan that details strategic objectives and priorities for the provision of humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan including core relief as well as immediate, mid and long-term solutions.

MERCY Malaysia in a statement today said that the plan encompasses food aid; healthcare and COVID-19 support and water, sanitarian and hygiene (WASH).

Under food aid, the assistance includes core support for the delivery of life-saving emergency food assistance across Afghanistan; providing vulnerable populations with locally, regionally and internationally procured in-kind food assistance; cash transfers for food and food vouchers.

“The components under healthcare and COVID-19 support include primary healthcare, COVID-19 support, mental health and psychosocial support and child and women-friendly space,” the statement read.

MERCY Malaysia also noted that interventions that would be undertaken include supplying clean water through water tankers at internally displaced persons (IDP) camps, distribution of hygiene kits to affected families and hygiene awareness campaigns.

The MERCY Malaysia Afghanistan Humanitarian Response Plan provides a framework for an immediate response (three to six months), mid-term response (six-12 months) and long-term response (three years).

To ensure access for efficient delivery of aid, as well as to build local organisations’ capacity, MERCY Malaysia is partnering with Afghanistan NGO’s which are members of the Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN).

Meanwhile, MERCY Malaysia president Datuk Dr Ahmad Faizal Perdaus said at this point in time, the projected funding requirement that would enable MERCY Malaysia to activate the immediate phase of the Afghanistan Humanitarian Response Plan is RM2 million.

“To date, MERCY Malaysia has RM450,000 in the Afghanistan Relief Fund to initiate with local partners in Afghanistan humanitarian aid to vulnerable groups including the IDP,” he said, adding that the local partners not only will ramp up urgent response and interventions but facilitate community-based empowerment that MERCY Malaysia has long advocated.

MERCY Malaysia first entered Afghanistan in 2001 and, since then, has provided more than 20 programmes in Afghanistan ranging from Disaster Risk Management Programmes to the setting up of the Kandahar Vocational Training Centre.

To support the MERCY Malaysia Afghanistan Relief Fund, donations can be made via direct transfer to the MERCY Humanitarian Fund (Maybank 5621 7950 4126) or MERCY Malaysia (CIMB 8000 7929 08) meanwhile Zakat and Sadaqah contribution can also be made to the MERCY Humanitarian Fund via Maybank Islamic Account No: 5642 5858 7606.
