CAS, also known as CASOTAC (Charitable Assistance Society of Thousand-Arm Chenrezig) was officially set up and registered under the Registry of Societies in 1995. In 2004, CAS joined the Singapore Commission of Charities and is now formally regarded as one of the Voluntary Welfare Organisation(VWO) in Singapore. We have done or are organising many activities, from care and counselling for the chronically sick and visually handicapped to providing tuition for students from financially challenged backgrounds, assistance for some tertiary institution's Buddhist societies, establishment of some local Buddhist centers, food distribution for financially depleted families, assistance to any charity organisations both Buddhist and non-Buddhist, counselling services for inmates in collaboration with the Singapore prison service and organiszing Buddhist seminars and prayers amongst others.
On a private basis, we support more than 200 over monks and nuns in their education, health care and many other things from all over the world: Serajhe, Drepung Loseling, Gyudmey Drikung Kagyu, Drukpa Lineage, Nyingma, Sri Lankan, Burmese, etc.
In additon, we are actively doing our sincerest prayers to Lord Buddha, Mother Tara, Guru Padmasambhava and all Buddhas of all directions and time to all our precious and dear mother sentient beings all over, above and across the universe.
We have no landed properties, no Dharma centres, no accumulated money, etc. - so we have less headache and heartache.
