In 1989, the seed of Tzu Chi's loving kindness was brought to Malaysia. On August 11, 1993, the Penang liaison office was officially set up, followed by establishment of other sub-branches. in 1997, Tzu Chi set up its first dialysis center in Penang followed by two more in Butterworth and Jitra to provide free dialysis treatment for the poor. In June 2002, the Heart Lotus Palliative Care Service Unit was launched to provide counseling and care to terminally ill patients.
