Taiwan Based Group "Cultivates Compassion, Service"

The Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation is an international organization with the charitable mission to educate the rich to help the poor and to inspire the poor to realize their riches.

"With the spirit of self-discipline, diligence, frugality, and perseverance, Tzu Chi set out to help the poor and relieve suffering. Over time, the foundation’s mission started with Charity and extended into Medicine, Education, and Humanistic Culture...The shared goal of Tzu Chi volunteers is to cultivate sincerity, integrity, faith, and honesty within while exercising kindness, compassion, joy, and selflessness to humanity through concrete actions. Transcending the bounds of race, nationality, language, and religion, they serve the world under the notion that 'when others are hurting, we feel their pain; when others suffer, we feel their sorrow'," explains the website.
