Xi'an Public Welfare Alliance works to promote a spirit of volunteerism. Many student volunteers are trained to participate in public welfare activities and social work.
On January 13, 2013, less than a month before the Chinese New Year, volunteers of the Xi’an Public Welfare Alliance sent festival greetings to people with disabilities. They sent flour, cooking oil, hand warmer, and 100 RMB to each of our disabled friends. These things may not always last, but they represent our goodwill. We want our friends to understand that they are cared for and loved.
We were divided into two groups to visit our friends with disabilities. Luoluo, Yelang, Dian’nao and I visited Xia Xiaohong, a 47-year-old patient with the brittle bone disease. He is renowned for his firm spirit, and even works as an activist for public welfare organizations. He uses the computer to plan activities and actively takes on more responsibilities. He said, “I will not be ashamed of my disability. On the contrary, I will witness to more people of the power of the public welfare and help them regain confidence in life!”
We wish Xia Xiaohong a happy family and peaceful life!
