[SCIE web news, February 24th, 2017] Last Sunday, several members of our ZhaoHui Club went to Shenzhen Welfare Centre, and we wanted to do what we can to help both the old and children. We gathered and donated 400 pieces of toothbrushes, toothpaste and 220 pieces of towels for them. It’s not sufficient, but it shows our sincerity and love. Not only us, but other people from Hangzhou, Henan and Shenzhen, showed their kindness as well, and here we give these sponsors our sincerest gratitude.
We arrived at 9 o’clock in the morning. Then, distributing some daily necessities to the elders…They talked, sang and bathed and enjoyed the sunshine in a semidetached house, but all their behavior couldn’t cover their frailty. I had a mixed feeling: they used to struggle on their job, but now, they pass their rest time staying with other elders. They ought to be respected and cared by the society.
The children there, who have been abandoned ever since they were born, or lost their parents afterwards, and who were so excited to see us coming, asked us for hugs when we stepped foot into their residence and didn’t want us to leave. Although they have many unfortunate experiences the children benefited from our Shenzhen volunteers spending time at the orphanage.
We wish all the children blessings and hope they have a happy, healthy and successful future.
