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.
On June 28, we held birthday party for senior citizens who were born in June. In the afternoon, volunteers, children and senior citizens spent a cheerful birthday party.
There were 40 senior citizens and their average age is beyond 80. The hot weather did not disturb their happiness. They came to the party site early. The volunteers were busy to take care of people, organizing room, sending fruits and helping senior citizens to find seats. There were over 30 volunteers who provided very consideration services. Looking at the busy volunteers, a grandpa could not help saying, “I have not had my birthday for years. It’s really great to spend my birthday with all of them. Thank you so much!”
The activity lasted for 2 hours. The senior citizens performed Peking Opera. The little volunteers also presented their performances. The volunteers said although they gave up their rest time on weekend, it’s meaningful to dedicate love to senior citizens.
