Ethical Eating Day
Join Tzu Chi & let's bring awareness to the benefits of vegetarianism: It's good for your health, but also the Earth!
The SDG Action Team is officially an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC), advocating for the Sustainable Development Goals, while outreaching Tzu Chi's projects that target them.
Tzu Chi Foundation actively works within the international community to promote grassroots empowerment, developing a more sustainable community after being impacted by disasters. With the standard humanitarian guidelines to provide food security and nutrition, WASH education & capacity, Shelter, Settlement, and Non-Food Items, and Health Action, Tzu Chi aligns itself with the Sustainable Development Goals to create a world in which the vulnerable becomes empowered and finds the strength to help others in need, forming a cycle of compassion and gratitude.

In 2015 Tzu Chi, in collaboration with the Healey International Relief Foundation (HIRF) and Caritas Freetown, set out to provide relief to a country devastated by the Ebola virus. Learn more about the struggles faced by Sierra Leonean people and how Tzu Chi is helping to overcome them.
With the activation and subsequent deactivation of the UN’s Clusters, following Nepal's devastating earthquake, Tzu Chi, too, enabled its emergency disaster relief and development systems, of which are based upon the universal humanitarian guidelines of the Sphere Project.
After the Bangkok Refugee Center (BRC) closed its medical center, Tzu Chi, with the support of the U.S. Bureau of Populations, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and Bangkok Asylum Seekers and Refugee Assistance Network (BASRAN), extended a helping hand to those seeking refuge in Thailand.
