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.

Living the high life of “eating, drinking, playing and making merry” was once the “life mission” of Hsu Li Chen (Ci Yu). A chance encounter with Tzu Chi propelled the well-to-do homemaker into a joyful path of service for the less fortunate.

Tzu Chi Merit organization (Singapore) held two sessions of Year End Blessing Ceremony at The Star Theatre, to review volunteers’ footprints of kindness and charity in 2017, while also ushering in a new year with the collective love of everyone.
11th January may be just one out of 365 days in the calendar, but for Tzu Chi volunteers and members, it marks “Ethical Eating Day”, a day worth remembering and observing.

"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
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.
Words themselves have no tangible weight,
but a careless remark can weigh people's hearts down.
