Tzu Chi carries out charity work for refugees in Canada, the United States, Great Britain, France, Serbia, Turkey, Jordan, Thailand, Malaysia, and Australia, providing displaced people with financial aid, daily necessities, or medical care. There are even schools or free clinic centers run by the foundation for refugees in three of these countries: Turkey, Thailand, and Malaysia.
Tzu Chi volunteers in Europe have long provided help to the KrnjaËa refugee camp in Belgrade, Serbia, a camp made up mostly of refugees from the Middle East and Africa. Tzu Chi is the only organization still providing ongoing aid to the camp. Volunteers visited the camp again in September 2022. During the trip they also distributed school supplies and book bags to refugee students at Branko Pešić School, also in Belgrade.
