Who We Are

In Chinese, “tzu” means compassion and “chi” means relief- the very things Dharma Master Cheng Yen sought to offer the impoverished in her native Taiwan. The Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation was founded in 1966 and began providing medical care to the poor. Since then, it has evolved its care into an international medical mission.


One of the main missions is to work with the local doctors to introduce them to the spirit of Tzu Chi. Today, you can see I’m not really seeing patients because, thank goodness, we have so many local doctors.
Stephen Denq, Volunteer Doctor
Giving is not a privilege of the rich. We can use our own power and heart to help others.
Amanda Wang, Tzu Chi Volunteer
We designed it in a sense where we create a 'wow' experience for the patient. Every patient who comes into our mobile [clinic] can feel the 'wow' experience.
Steven Voon, Tzu Chi Mobile Clinic Executive Director
We wanted to challenge people. We wanted them to think seriously about what they valued in life and about their choices to help other people...And I think that’s really helping advance organ donation.
Bryan Stewart, One Legacy, Vice President of Communications
