The Chairwoman of The Indonesian Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation
The Captain of The Indonesian Tzu Chi Foundation
In 1991, Liu Su Mei and her husband started to run a shoe factory in Indonesia. Her children went to study in Taipei International School in Jakarta. At that time, she met Liang Cheung who also came from Taiwan. As Liu Su Mei lived close to the school; hence after the Taiwanese entrepreneur’s wives brought their children to school, they went to Liu Su Mei’s house to gather.
Liang Cheung, Liu Sumei, Gao Baoqin, Zhang Chunying, Li Shujuan, and many others then started to do Tzu Chi charity events. They began visitng nursing homes and orphanages, and gradually expanded to the countryside of Jakarta, providing medicine for tuberculosis patients and supplying nutritious food for malnourished children. Although unfamiliar with the environment and unable to speak Indonesian language, they still communicated with full of smile.
Since 1998, more and more entrepreneurs in Indonesia have been joining Tzu Chi. For more than twenty years, Liu Sumei has been bearing the responsibility as the Managing Chairwoman of The Indonesian Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation. Deep inside her heart, she always remembers Master Cheng Yen’s teaching. Besides working together with local volunteers to establish and develop the missions of charity, medicine, education, and humanistic culture, at the same time, she also works to synergize the humanistic culture of Tzu Chi with the culture of Indonesian people. This enables Tzu Chi Indonesia to grow with deeper root and consequently makes it possible for Tzu Chi to utilize its potentials the best for the society. During those moments, patience, determination, and the capacity to coordinate are obviously required. Liu Sumei has always been role model for Tzu Chi volunteers.
Transcending religion and race
Wherever you step on a ground, uphold the sky (When in Rome, do as the Romans do). As Tzu Chi Indonesia cultivates the land of blessings in Indonesia, the footprints of Tzu Chi keeps on reaching every corner of the country.
