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.
Love is as a light in the darkness; love is as a poem which warm people in winter; love is more like gentle breeze in summer; and love is also like the rain in spring and fruit in autumn. Volunteers Association hope to bring the love to each senior citizen.
On July 26, TFISH volunteers came to Diaozhuang Nursing Home. They helped the elderly with some of their physical ailments with massages. It was raining heavily, but they came to the nursing home on time. One of the volunteers have been helping Grandma Zhang with her back pain for a year. Grandma Zhang declares that she has been feeling much better since the massages.
After the massages, our volunteers helped clean the foot and cut the nails for some of the elderly people. Grandpa Liu is 83 and his nails covered with dirt. The volunteer did not avoid his feet, but held them. He helped wash, massage and cut the feet nails. He said Grandpa Liu’s nails need to cut 3 months later and he would come again.
