The COVID-19 pandemic has brought families across the US into poverty, hunger, and desperation. Tzu Chi USA initial efforts “Flatten the Curve” has brought aid to our front-line heroes, essential workers, and many more, we are now shifting to long-term recovery efforts that humanely buffer the needs of our nation’s most vulnerable as they enter their next chapter. We are specifically focusing on those with low/no income, the undocumented, homeless college students, domestic abused partners, and much more. That’s why we need your support, now more than ever.
With just a $10 contribution to our Together While Apart campaign, you can help us get individuals and families the assistance they need to move forward through the pandemic – be it financial support, groceries, personal protective equipment (PPE), and more. If we can get 500,000 people to participate, we can reach $5,000,000 in relief!

Tzu Chi USA is sending medical supplies to hospitals and medical centers across the country, and giving charity to those most vulnerable, like the homeless, elderly, and the undocumented. We’re supporting healthcare workers around the country by sourcing, purchasing, and sending medical supplies in the safest ways possible, and opening up our charity services to those most critically impacted by the pandemic – including those with low-income, the elderly, the undocumented, homeless college students, domestic abused partners and many more. This may be through food, supplies, cash relief, and much more.
Approximate nationwide relief, updated as aid progresses.
To call attention to the impact of our expanding PPE donations, we are presenting a collection of narratives called #MyMaskMyStory. Our goal is to share the most compelling stories of strength, survival, and compassion through the pandemic to bolster our long-term relief efforts through our Together While Apart campaign. We humbly invite you to contribute!
It has never been a more important time to show compassion through action. You can help show your neighbors that we are all truly in this together, and we’re here for the long haul.
Our founder, Dharma Master Cheng Yen, appeals to all to practice vigilance and sincere piety. Beginning on February 1st, besides encouraging a vegetarian diet, Tzu Chi volunteers across the globe hold daily prayers. Deliver best wishes and blessings for the COVID-19 Affected Areas.
