As the COVID-19 pandemic continues through 2021, climate change accelerates at an unprecedented rate, impacting ecosystems and communities around the world. We are seeing this through global floods, wildfires, mudslides, droughts, and other natural disasters. Nevertheless, Tzu Chi volunteers around the world mobilized to bring essential supplies to families in need and comfort them with love and care this summer.
Tzu Chi’s relief in Haiti began over one decade ago, after an earthquake tragically struck the country in 2010. Volunteers sprung to action again when Hurricane Matthew battered the southern coast of Haiti in 2016, and volunteers have regularly reached out in loving aid ever since through distribution events and more.
