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.
Monthly Birthday Party is our promise with the elders, which was designed to allow older people to have meaningful birthdays every year. On May 16, we practiced with our promise. Senior Center held birthday party for 39 senior citizens with the support of TFish
Each leading senior citizens of the party introduced themselves and spoke something gratitude. After introduction, it was time for volunteers to performing. Along with the familiar birthday song, volunteers slowly pushed birthday cake to seniors. The senior citizens made their wishes with eyes closed. When they opened their eyes, they surprisingly found that a group of children were in front of them. The children gave seniors their paintings as gifts, which made seniors thrilled. Grandpa Yu could not spend his birthday with his own family, but today, it was a unforgettable day to him, he said: "This is my happiest day of the year. It is the best birthday I've had. "
After the party, social workers and volunteers went to greeting the elders who were not convenient to move.
