Tsunami Disaster Memorial Service on 9 Jan 2005

 

 

A Tsunami Disaster Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, 9 January 2005 at 5.00 pm at the Singapore Expo Hall 2. All are welcome to attend.
The Memorial Service will be an occasion for us to come together as a nation to remember the victims of the tsunami disaster both in Singapore and across the world, and to pray for the recovery of the injured and the safe return of those who are still missing or unaccounted for.
Singapore stands in solidarity with all the countries that have been grievously affected by the disaster.
The Prime Minister of Singapore will participate in the Service and address the gathering. Religious leaders from the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO) representing nine religions will say prayers. The Memorial Service will be broadcast "live" over television and radio.
Members of the public attending the Service are advised to arrive before 4.00 pm. Other details which are being finalised will be released over the next few days.
As a mark of respect for the victims, the national flag will be flown at half mast on Sunday, 9 January 2005.
The Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) is leading an inter-agency committee, comprising the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA), Ministry of Health (MOH), Singapore Police Force (SPF), Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) and the People’s Association (PA), to organise the Memorial Service.
