General information

Tzu Chi Foundation or Tzu Chi (慈濟), literally "Compassionate Relief", is an international humanitarian organization and a prominent non-governmental organization (NGO) in the Chinese-speaking world with a special consultative status at the United Nations Economic and Social Council. Tzu Chi conducts its mission via an international network of volunteers. They are easily recognized by their blue and white uniforms, often referred to as 藍天白雲 (lántiān báiyún, lit. 'blue sky, white clouds') by volunteers, and Tzu Chi relief workers have been called "blue angels" for their uniforms. Tzu Chi Foundation also has the Tzu Chi Collegiate Youth Association (慈濟大專青年) or Tzu Youth (慈青) in short. Their job includes the four missions of Tzu Chi, especially charity work. Their work also includes the promotion of vegetarianism and the awareness of world issues and environmental protection. Tzu Chi has several sub-organizations, such as the Tzu Chi International Medical Association (TIMA), composed of professional medical personnel who travel overseas to volunteer their services in poor communities without access to medical care and during international disaster relief. As a non-profit organization, Tzu Chi has built many hospitals and schools worldwide, including a network of medical facilities in Taiwan and an education system spanning from kindergarten through university and medical school. Schools were also rebuilt in the aftermath of earthquakes in Iran, China and Haiti.
