The second annual Volunteering Expo has been held at Beijing Normal University. The expo hopes to inspire more people to play their part in working towards China’s social development. It’s no coincidence that Sunday’s expo comes just ahead of International Volunteers’ Day.
by the year 2015, it’s estimated that more than 40million people in China will be regularly doing volunteer work. There are already more non-government volunteer organizations than ever before. One such group is Blue Sky Rescue Team. In April, two old men were lost for 3 days on Yunmeng Mountain, where families were worried so they called the group’s hotline.
Li Feng, Beijing Red Cross Blue Sky Rescue Team, said, “We sent 7 teams and searched 24 hours, finally we found the two old men were still alive. We were so pleased and this is our value.
Volunteering is an effective way to give people the opportunity to participate in building a better society.
