Xi’an Alliance works to promote a spirit of volunteerism. Many student volunteers are trained to participate in public welfare activities and social work. The main office is in Xi’an, China.
October 16, 2015 was a fine day with good weather. Chongyang Festival (a day to show respect to senior citizens in China) was coming. Doctor Yang, who is from the Chinese Medicine Center, came and did free services for the senior citizens. She is professional and patient.
Early in the morning, volunteers were busy arranging the site, moving tables, chairs, and organizing things. When the activity began, the senior citizens were waiting in line. Volunteers did their own jobs well. Some of them were doing information records, some were helping senior citizens, and some were guiding senior citizens to the line. Health workers were checking blood pressure and blood sugar for the senior citizens. Doctor Meng and Doctor Yang were taking their pulse and answering questions patiently.
One of the senior citizens said happily, “This is very kind of you guys. You are doing good for our senior citizens. It’s difficult for some senior citizens to go to the hospital. This activity was a great help. Thank you! We hope there are more activities like this in the future.”
We thank every volunteer who came for the activity today. We thank the health workers and doctors from the Chinese Medicine Center. We thank the staff from Youth 2nd Community. Thank you all for your love. We hope more and more people will participate in the activities, showing respect to senior citizens and helping them in more aspects.
