In 1995, Sister Echo Chien led by example and motivated the members of the KL Branch to become more actively involved in Tzu Chi’s humanitarian work. In June 1995, the Committee Members from KL began their regular visits to a home for mentally retarded children in Kuala Kubu Baru. Subsequently, they initiated monthly visits to the Sg Buluh home for individuals affected by leprosy. These ongoing activities have continued to this day, forming the foundation of KL Tzu Chi as the number of long-term poor family cases continued to grow.
In June 1996, Brother David Liu generously donated his 3,700 sq ft apartment to Tzu Chi, which was transformed into a gathering place for KL members to meet and conduct their activities. On October 20, 1996, with the blessings of Master Cheng Yen, the new KL Centre was officially inaugurated and opened by Master Bo-Yuan, Master Guo-Neng, and Master Chang-Chao. This marked another significant milestone in the history of Tzu Chi KL.
KL Tzu Chi experienced rapid growth within a short period. With the dedicated efforts of the Committee Members and the new Centre, numerous activities were organized in coordination with the Melaka Branch. Given their shared objectives and missions, the Melaka sector was established as a Branch on May 21, 1997, while KL was upgraded to a sub-branch.
Over the years, the old KL Centre expanded its activities, necessitating more space. On March 1, 2004, the KL Branch relocated to its current premises in Kelana Jaya, enabling it to accommodate its growing activities and train more volunteers. On February 1, 2006, the KL sub-branch was further elevated to a full branch, becoming the central coordinating hub for Tzu Chi activities in central Malaysia, which includes areas like Klang, Kuantan, Raub, and others.Learn More
