This summer holiday, P1D William in Wuxi United International School joined a volunteer group in Jiangyin to help students in rural area in Shandong province. He is the youngest volunteer in this group.
After 8 hours driving, they arrived at the school called “Tian Gong Secondary School” in Heze city, Shandong province. The warm welcome from local students swept away their tiredness. Having a look at the peeling wall and the shabby equipment in the classrooms and comparing with his own learning environment, William made up his mind to help them as much as he can.
During the following three days, William played games with local students and learned emergency knowledge as well as doing some visiting, which helped them be closer and built up their friendship. Although the food is not so delicate, William finished them all every time.
At the closing ceremony, they donated many books and other things to the school, which passed love from one person to another. William felt so much joyfulness by helping others.
After finishing the summer camp, William followed his team to visit some local poor families. The muddy roads could not stop their steps. The students living in these poor families got a lot of learning prizes from school, which deeply touched William’s heart.
