With the care and support of the leaders of the Institute, the third party branch of the Postgraduate of Philosophy and Public Administration of Henan University came to the Kaifeng Social Welfare Institute to visit orphan and widowed old people on the afternoon of May 10, 2018.
The students came to the Social Welfare Institute with gifts such as well-prepared books and daily necessities. With the explanation of the local staff, everyone had a general understanding of the Social Welfare Institute. The Kaifeng Social Welfare Institute, belonging to the Kaifeng Civil Affairs Bureau, is the only comprehensive social welfare institution in Kaifeng. The main mission is to adopt the lonely, old, disabled, and young people who have no working ability and no source of life and provide all-round living services such as treatment, rehabilitation, education, and support for them.
Because of a variety of congenital diseases, most of the children living in welfare houses are abandoned children. Because the larger children go to rehearse the June 1 program, the rest are younger children. Out of their protection, we can only interact with them across the glass. And look at the innocent face, we hope to give them more warmth. Afterwards, under the guidance of the staff, we also visited the widowed old people. Everyone actively took chess with the elderly, listened to stories from the old man, and read newspapers for the elderly, presenting a warm scene. At the time of the separation, the elderly got up and waved goodbye to us. We hope to give them more companionship.
This love activity not only deepened the students’ effective understanding of the party and government related welfare policies, but also demonstrated the dedication and love of various party members and activists. At the same time, it enhanced everyone’s sense of social responsibility and strengthened the internal organization. We call on more social caring people to join the ranks of loving ones and let the widowed old people and special children keep up with us and share a love of the sky.
