I decided to give all the charity funds that I have saved up to Tzu Chi.
Peter Chen, Tzu Chi Volunteer Dentist
At first, we didn’t have that many volunteers, but the numbers gradually grew. Now, I am more than 70 years old, and some day I will have to retire. So we often think about bringing in new blood.
