For more than 25 years, Tzu Chi Singapore has been providing direct aid and care to underprivileged and disadvantaged communities. Currently, we focus our efforts in the following key areas:
In Tzu Chi, there is no clear distinction between the giver and the receiver. Our volunteers call our aid beneficiaries “Households of Gratitude”, and are grateful to the latter for giving them opportunities to give and to cultivate gratitude. With such spirit of equality and respect, we seek to create a culture of humanistic care in the community.
Our volunteers personally visit our beneficiaries each month to deliver aid to them and offer them emotional support. Through sincere interactions with the latter, we can better understand and cater to their needs.
Besides providing aid and emotional support, we seek to inspire love and kindness in our beneficiaries by encouraging them to help others in need, so that they, too, may experience the joy and fulfilment of giving.
All our Missions are made possible by the selfless efforts of our island-wide network of volunteers. Coming from all walks of life, they share the common goal of working for the betterment of the community.

If you encounter such activities in social media or public, please be vigilant and call our hotline 65829958 for verification.
The only ongoing fundraising activity is ‘Save For A Good Cause’ campaign, where we 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. As for donations via online medium, the official platforms are Giving.sg, GIVE.asia and Benevity.
Please note that information on all our fundraising activities are published on our official English and Chinese websites, and all our volunteers soliciting streets and doors to doors donations will be in full Tzu Chi uniform, with a valid fundraising permit issued by relevant government authorities.
