HIU student volunteers visited elderly residents at the Harbin Social Welfare Centre for the Aged. The student volunteers were from the Publicity Office of Heilongjiang International University TV Station. The community initiative was jointly organized by People’s Daily online channel in Heilongjiang province, Feida Taxi Drivers on Lei Feng Team and HIU.
Director Chen showed students around the Centre. Director Chen, who leads the Centre, is ranked as a national model worker suffers from illness herself but still demonstrates great commitment to working for the Centre.
The eldery were treated to a series of talent shows performed by HIU students. Students in turn, were treated to a Fan Dance performance and a beautiful poetry recital.
Although life is not perfect for the elderly residents, they face up to their life with a smile. The moral learnt on that day: Cease to struggle and you cease to live; no matter how hard life can become, embrace it and prepare as best you can for it. Charity never stops at that social welfare centre.
