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.
In the afternoon of Dec. 15, we held the 24th birthday party for 177 senior citizens with the support of Chongqing Sunshine Public Service Foundation.
In this summer, birthday party had been concealed for 3 months due to high temperature. Social workers visited all senior citizens who were born in July, August, October and December before the activity. They got to know their wishes and needs. The senior citizens were invited to participate in the activity. Many senior citizens were grateful. During the activity, the senior citizens shared cakes and their happiness with each other. The volunteers presented their performances and greetings.
After the activity, the social workers visited those who were not convenient to move. They sent wishes and cakes to their rooms. Some of them though could not move, they still knew and said thank you with weak voices.
