Ark Welfare is a non-profit established in Hechi City, Guangxi. The organization encourages people to get involved in public service and respond to the needs of their communities.
On January 30, 2013, the Ark Firefly Service Group convened at the Youqi Primary School in Yalong Township, Dahua County of Guangxi Province. The Service Group is a simple and ordinary group of students who are receiving aids themselves. Founded on the principles of giving back to society and improving the community, the Service Group works to meet the needs in and around their community. This week, the team was comprised of local senior high school students and backed up by the junior students under the guidance of their teachers. Determined to serve their community, the group set out to assist their neighbors and to distribute goods and materials to families in need.
The group purchased rice, oil, and other daily necessities for 13 elderly people over two days. This same group will take action again before the Chinese New Year. They will bring goods to the elderly so that they will get to spend a warm festival.
