Ricun Water Manager Contributing to the Welfare Center
Xiamen Ricun Water Manager has continuously been devoted to public welfare establishments. This time we concentrated on Children in Xiamen who needs help urgently, bringing clean water （by cleaning water pipe in the institutions） and daily necessities to those lovely kids.
“There’s no place like home”, we often heard people say that. Home is not just a resting place, it is where most of the memories were created and shared. Everyone might have his or her distinctive understanding, but “no matter what it means to you, there is surely something nostalgic about the place we call home”. Therefore, you probably can imagine what it is like for those children who live in a welfare institution. Helping children in need, bringing the feeling of “home” to them, is what this trip was about.
With the lead of the representatives from the welfare center, Water Manager sent out consolation teams to 4 different places in Xiamen. By talking to and playing with the children, we could know about their living and study conditions. What those kids want is actually very simple, a textbook, a school bag or just a short trip in the city they live in, all can be easily realized if given enough attention.
Heavy rain that day did not put out the enthusiasm of the staff of Water Manager or the hope and expectation of the kids. An entire day’s visit has helped us learn about the obstacles of those troubled families, we hope the time we spent together was able to give some comforts to the kids and we truly wish them growing up happily.
