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 tend to work with 2 groups of people: youth and elders. The young people are as enthusiastic as bees. They have dreams and big expectations for love. Thanks to the support of TFish, volunteering is beginning to become a habit for today's youth as they learn what they can gain by caring for the elderly people in their society.
Today, I am here to record another story of youth volunteerism. On December 7th, volunteers from the Xin Yue Senior Citizen Service Center, Chongqing Engineering Vocational School and the Industry and Commercial College could be seen cleaning mud from the river. The Center organized volunteers from 2 schools to clean up the mud so the elderly patients could have a place to walk. We planned on 50 volunteers but there were 110 volunteers for the activity. To ensure an efficient implementation, they were divided into groups. The young people were used to living in comfortable conditions and don't have a lot of experience with nature. Therefore, they were excited by the opportunity to work in the mud. Their clothes became discolored and their bodies began to ache, but they still experienced happiness from this labor of love. It was great to see the whole team supporting each other.
