Grounded on core values of respect, love, and service to the elderly, the Xin Yue Senior Citizen Service Center of Chongqing, China, promotes social work services for senior citizens and builds harmonious living environment for them.
After a day’s ride, Wang Jun and Yun Yun, staff from TFish, arrived at the Chongqing station. Yun Yun got seriously car sick. It was almost 9:00 PM when they got to the hotel.
This was my first time to be so close to the staff from TFish. They are so kind and we had a lot to chat about on the way. The next morning, Wang Jun and Yun Yun visited our Center. Director and staff from Chongqing Xinyue Senior Citizen Service Center. The staff did an introduction on the history, development, current situation and future plan of the organization to staff from TFish. They were very nice and humorous. When we talked about our current situation and difficulties, they responded with positive encouragement. Wang Jun shared with us how senior citizen services and social work are done overseas. They also gave us a book with practical advice.
At noon, we had lunch with them at the school’s canteen. They like spicy food. In the afternoon, we guided them to visit 2 senior citizens. They old men were very pleased to see them. Seeing their living situation, Wang Jun said nothing, but fought back the tears in her eyes. When they left, Wang Jun and Yun Yun gave their sincere best wishes to the old men. We believe their wishes and warmth will accompany the old men each day.
