On March 5, the “Eternal Path” volunteer team from the Baotou branch of China Energy Railway Equipment Co., Ltd. provided volunteer services for the Heping Senior Home in the Kundulun District of Baotou City, Inner Mongolia, as a way to promote the Chinese tradition of respecting and loving the elderly.
Wearing red vests, those volunteers and their children brought milk, bread, fruit and other gifts to elderly people of no family living in the senior home. They also accompanied the elderly to chat, play chess, walk or bath in the sun, and helped them fold the quilts, make the bed, and dry bed sheets. In addition, they helped aged people unable to move freely comb their hair and trim their nails. The volunteers asked the elderly about their diet and health conditions and provided tips for keeping healthy. With concrete actions, they showed their care and affection for the aged people. Younger volunteers performed songs and dances, chatted with the elderly, and did massage for them. Their heartfelt greetings and care were appreciated by the elderly people, and made the latter feel warmth and care from society. The senior home was submerged in heartwarming laughter.
The head of the senior home expressed thanks to the volunteers. The “Eternal Path” volunteer team regularly offers volunteer services to the Heping and Xiyanghong senior homes. So far, they have provided such volunteer services more than 30 times, bringing birthday gifts and living supplies as well as mental support to elderly people there. All of these demonstrate the company’s social responsibility.
