About Tzu Chi Singapore


Paving the Path of Great Love in the Lion City

In 50 years, Singapore has made a remarkable transformation from a third world backwater to a global financial and commercial hub. Tzu Chi, which was founded in Taiwan just one year after the independence of Singapore, has likewise established its presence globally from its humble beginnings in the rural east coast of Taiwan. Feeling the pain and hardships of the suffering, and believing that everyone possesses selfless love within, the NGO has inspired countless people around the world to serve as dedicated volunteers to work for the betterment of humanity.

The seeds of Tzu Chi’s Great Love from Taiwan took root on the shores of our island more than 20 years ago. Tzu Chi’s work in Singapore started with the Mission of Charity and the goal of relieving poverty, before gradually expanding into the Missions of Medicine, Education, Humanistic Culture, and Environmental Protection over the years.



Purifying hearts and minds

Bringing about harmony in society
Mitigating disasters in the world

Working towards these three aspirations of Dharma Master Cheng Yen, Tzu Chi Singapore has established the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation (Singapore) and Buddhist Tzu Chi Merit Organization (Singapore) Ltd., which carry out various programmes and activities that benefit the community.

Singapore is a relatively wealthy and blessed nation spared of natural disasters. Hence, Master Cheng Yen encourages Tzu Chi volunteers in Singapore to diligently sow the seeds of love and kindness, so that with such collective blessings, our country would be imbued with humanistic values and enjoy lasting peace and prosperity.
