Our Mission
Over the years of disaster relief in the United States and overseas, Tzu Chi adhered to the spirit of “compassion to all human beings”. Not limited to compassion and relief, Tzu Chi also guides and nurtures the kind nature in people in order to keep a virtuous circle.

Where We Work

The footprint of our humanitarian aid missions has reached 126 countries.

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”.

Our Philosophy

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.
