“Back to the beginning of the pandemic [Master Cheng Yen] urged us to serve. Try to go to the people [in] need. Because this is Santa Ana, and then people really need help”
— Martin Kuo, Tzu Chi volunteer.
In the city of Santa Ana in California, the COVID-19 pandemic has generated a world of uncertainty and continued upheavals for low-income individuals, many of whom still are unable to return to work to support their families. Through our recent free food distribution, however, volunteers are helping to ease this struggle.
