A few quotes from the Rabbi on 'Redemption of Israel'
in which he teaches that the tikun required for the Redemption is the charity done in Diaspora

The People of Israel transgressed on the issue of charity and were exiled, for it says “The faithful city That was filled with justice…They do not judge the case of the orphan, And the widow’s cause never reaches them”. The tikun (repair) required to end the exile is, therefore, charity (tzedakah, that which is just) for it says "Observe what is right and do what is just; For soon My salvation shall come", about which it says, "Pressing forward in His great might". The might of which I speak is the charity done by Israel during the exile, for with it comes My great salvation, for it is with charity that they repaired what was distorted, and they must be redeemed from their exile.

Me'il Tzedakah, Volume 1, section 1034, p. 290, published by Shaarei Yosher Institute, Jerusalem, 1992
