Where We Focus
Tzu Chi’s compassion transcends the boundaries of race, nation, language, color and religion. Combing social ministry with spiritual ministry, Tzu Chi spread the universal value of compassion, and bring the humanistic spirit heritage rooted in Chinese culture to its highest point. The current missions are called “The Four Great Missions”, which include charity, medical care, education and humanities. Moreover, Tzu Chi is also devoted to international disaster relief, bone marrow donation, community volunteering and environmental protection. Together they are called the “Eight Dharma Seals”.
Tzu Chi Means Compassion and Relief
More than 50 years ago, a group of housewives inspired by Dharma Master Cheng Yen’s vow to serve others joined her mission of love by donating from their humble grocery fund.
