Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation (Singapore) and Buddhist Tzu Chi Merit Organization (Singapore) Ltd. are not organising any street fundraising events (e.g. Flag Day). If you encounter such activities in the public, please be vigilant and call our hotline (65) 65829958 for verification.
The recent fundraising activity, ‘Save For A Good Cause’ campaign, is to encourage the public to give rise to kindness and save a little each day in a Tzu Chi bamboo coin bank, to help those in need. Please note that information on all our fundraising activities will be published on our official English and Chinese websites, and all our volunteers soliciting donations will be in full uniform, with a valid fundraising permit issued by relevant government authorities.
Inspiring news and stories about our Missions and volunteers

The sounds of cheering were heard coming from a green lawn, where a group of kids were playing the Tug of War with their parents. The game brought back memories of childhood for many of the parents and drew them closer to their children.
At the Income Eco Run 2018, participants made genuine efforts to “race” for a greener planet. These Zero Waste runners took the initiative to protect the environment by reducing trash at the source.

Try and picture this in your mind’s eye: After queueing up and purchasing food from a popular hawker stall, the table of leftover food is being poured into a waste bin, before you sit down to enjoy your meal. Sometimes, one-tenth of the food is discarded
"As inhabitants of the Earth, we are nourished and sustained by Mother Earth who provides us our food and all the resources for life. If she is healthy and well, we will be healthy and well. Our fates are intertwined." — Dharma Master Cheng Yen
How do you convince prison inmates who have had a rough journey in life that there is indeed spring at the end of a cold winter?
In Tzu Chi, we do not differentiate between the giver and the receiver. Our aid beneficiaries are called “Households of Gratitude” as they allow our volunteers opportunities to cultivate gratitude and respect through giving of themselves. By touching lives and serving others with a spirit of equality, we create a culture of humanistic care.
Over the past 20-plus years, we have established our Four Missions of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanistic Culture in Singapore. They encompass a wide range of programmes and services that enable us to provide comprehensive, all-round care and assistance to families and individuals in need.
Our island-wide network of volunteers serve the various neighbourhoods by selflessly contributing their skills and efforts. Coming from all walks of life, they share the common goal of working for the betterment of the community.
To end the disasters of the world,
we should start with inspiring kindness in people.
