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.
We planned a birthday party for those who were born in October for the senior citizens. We invited 2 senior citizens to participate in planning. According to their advices, we invited children with artistic skills to perform in the party. In the afternoon of October 19, the activity opened with the support of TFish. 37 senior citizens born in October attended party.
Each of senior citizens introduced themselves and shred their stories. Grandpa’s story moved me a lot. “Though I cannot walk, but I can sit in the wheelchair. Even if the wheelchair cannot move, my heart is still beating,” He said. The little volunteers performed wonderful dancing, singing and allegro, which made all senior citizens smile happily. Then the children gave their greetings by sending an oil painting drew with spare time to 6 senior citizens. The painting showed their respects and caring for the elderly around them. We sent birthday cake to the senior citizens together. The senior citizens made their wishes. After the celebration party, we visited over 20 senior citizens with poor health and sent them birthday cakes and milk. We hope each senior citizen born in October can receive greetings from TFish and the children. For young guys, birthday is a kind of celebration, but for senior citizens, birthday seems more like a connection of the life, reviewing the experience until the graduation of the life.
