In Changzhou city, Jiangsu province, with the principles of “serve the society, dedicate love, help others and delight ourselves, Changzhou Volunteers Association actively promotes volunteerism around the city.
In the early morning of November 24, about 40 volunteers bought fresh vegetables and meat from the market. They would like to visit Yonghong Nursing Home of Changzhou City. They would make dumplings with the senior citizens.
With people’s efforts, vegetables and meat became various shapes of dumplings. Bowls of steaming dumplings were sent to the senior citizens.
People in Changzhou stepped into aging in 1985. According to the experts, the aged population would make up about 22.46% by 2015. Caring the senior citizen has become a social topic. Senior citizens are the wealth of the society. What should we do for the elderly people? A bowl of hot dumplings not only can warm the stomachs of the senior citizens, but warm their hearts.
