About TZU CHI FOUNDATION:
For the past 22 years, Tzu Chi has contributed over $2 million CAD to 55 distinct charitable projects to support low-income families, single mothers, living-alone seniors, battered women, the homeless, and patients in the addiction rehab centers in local communities. In order to supplement basic daily necessities to the less fortunate ones, Tzu Chi volunteers dedicated themselves in community services such as helping Food Bank distributions, visiting low-income families to deliver Christmas hampers, cooking and serving meals for homeless friends, and donating clothing and daily necessities to the needy through winter relief distribution. In addition, volunteers also assisted mentally challenged and the handicapped children in therapeutic horse-riding, and spend time with the cerebral palsy and the mentally challenged patients in Joy Care Center in Coquitlam, B.C.
Tzu Chi volunteers regularly serve at 17 food banks and temporary shelter locations, and distributed relief aid supplies to over 3,000 repients every year. Through years of continuous regular supports, Tzu Chi volunteers formed good relationships with the recipients, regardless of their ethnic backgrounds, colors, and religions. This enabled Tzu Chi volunteers to assist them with not only material aids but also emotional and spiritual comforts and supports.
