Promoting filial piety on the Double Ninth Festiv...

 As autumn breeze never fails to come, so the Double Ninth Festival always visits us as expected. As it happens, this year’s festival also marks the 30th Day for the Old. In order to create an atmosphere where the old are respected, cared for and assisted, a wide range of events were hosted throughout Yangpu on the eve of the festival, in an attempt to create an encouraging mood for showing care for the aged. 


Recently, the senior citizens' work committee office of Yangpu, together with the district’s labor union, geriatric foundation branch, and charitable foundation branch, hosted large-scale service activities for the elderly themed “active responses to your request” in Yangpu Park. Volunteers from the work committee office, foundation branch and other units set service stations on the site, where they provided the elderly with services, such as rights consulting, gratuitous treatment by famous doctors, medical care, blood pressure measuring, hair-cut, repairing shoes, fixing locks, matching keys, repairing umbrellas, small appliances, clocks and watches, and sharpening knives.


Recently, Yinhang Sub-district officially launched the volunteer service system for the elderly. According to reports, on the eve of the Day for the Old, the district established a volunteer team for the old, which consists of 8 branch teams from Shanghai University Of Sport, Sanaisi Reagent Co. Ltd, and other units. They would offer the seniors various services like lectures on health promotion and massage, sharing of potted planting techniques, and serving of delicious food. 


While paying attention to meet their material needs, they also worked to satisfy the spiritual demands of the elderly. On 26 October, the social welfare institute celebrated its “Yangfu, festival and happiness” day by showing the micro film Yangfu Nursing House At Deep Night in the cinema for the elderly and their family to watch. The film comprised three stories about the lives of the old and workers at the nursing house. It is reported that all the characters of the film were played by the excellent caregivers and the old of the nursing house.


Recently, a donation ceremony themed “showing care for the old through 100 photos” was co-hosted by Shanghai Photographers Association and House No.5 of Yangpu Veteran Center, aiming to present the retired veteran cadres with festival gifts, and also bring the photography event to an end. It is reported that the public benefit activity started at Qixi Festival, in which over 30 photographers from the association took photos of the retired veteran cadres of the house. And thanks to more than one months’ hard work, lots of photos were taken of the veterans to capture the moments of their happy lives.


Caring for and assisting the elderly are the best practice to carry forward the good legacy. On 27 October, the Community Cultural Activity Center of Daqiao Sub-district hosted the “poetry and cultivation to mark the festival” event. All the five sections of the event were launched by the sub-district, together with Yangpu Civilization Office, Women's Federation, and the Cultural Center. Volunteers from the community wrote and played several exciting performances, like dance "ode to pear", poetry reading "the praise", and intangible cultural heritage “Beijing Opera face painting and dance show”.


Recently, Jiangpu Road Sub-district hosted a service experience event themed “meeting your better self ahead” to show care for the elderly in Baodi Square. Young white-collar workers perceived the daily life of old people by wearing special equipment. Some youths said that they would not have the perception had they not attended the event. They said they would show more care for the elderly, especially those suffering diseases. In addition, there were experience area for protecting the elderly, and cognitive disorder awareness campaign area, attracting a lot of citizens to watch. 


Recently, in the junior library of Yangpu Library, an interactive lecture on the intangible cultural heritage about the Double Ninth Festival attracted a lot of children and parents. On the site, the teachers taught the children the origin and customs about the festival, with focus on Double Ninth Gao /Cake, and made the cake on the site with them. And the cakes thus made showed the filial piety the young bore for the old, and brought them closer together.
