Xinhua News Agency News in Changsha on 16 June: A College Student in Hunan Has Been Practicing Filial Piety and Love for 20 Years; She Said She Will Continue to Do It After Graduation

Reporter: Xie Ying

Xiao Xia, a 26-year-old college student from Hunan University of Commerce, has taken care of the widow of an expeditionary soldier for 20 years; she donated over RMB10,000 yuan to poor college students although her family is not rich. At the time of graduation, Xiao Xia donated RMB30,000 yuan again from her savings to Xiaoxia’s Young Piety & Love Practicing Team to help more people needing warmth.

Xiao Xia from Zengqiao Village, Huilongsi Town, Xinning County, Hunan Province, once served in a district of Guangzhou Military Region, and she is now a student from Hunan University of Commerce. Xiao Xia lived in her grandmother’s home when she was a child, where she knew that an 80-year-old lady named Jiang Dongjiao in the same village, a widow of an expeditionary soldier, was in poor health. Then the 6-year-old girl undertook the duty to take care of the elderly. She used to help the old woman with housework every day after school.

A few years later, Jiang Dongjiao’s eyes were blind and she couldn’t take care of herself. Although she often had an unpleasant smell, Xiao Xia took care of her more frequently; Xiao Xia often combed her hair, lifted water, washed clothes and swept the floor for the old woman. Later when Xiao Xia went to study in Xinning No.1 Middle School away from home for more than 60 km, she entrusted some friends in her village to look after the old woman, and returned to her during the summer and winter vacations.

In 2010, Xiao Xia was admitted to HNUC’s Beijin College. The first thing she did was to visit Jiang Dongjiao when she went home on summer and winter vacations. In December 2011, Xiao Xia, who was a sophomore, answered a call for recruitment. After joining the army, there were living allowances of RMB580 yuan for each month, and Xiao Xia sent RMB200 yuan a month to Jiang. “Jiang is getting older; I can’t often go back and help her, and I can only do that for her” Xiao said.

In 2013, Xiao Xia received a total compensation fee of RMB12,000 yuan. she remembered that there was a poor student in her class. “A poor classmate in my class only eats a vegetable dish every dayeggplants fried string beans; he only spends one yuan buying two steamed buns in the morning.” Thus Xiao Xia decided to donate the compensation to others.

RMB12,000 yuan is not a small sum of money, and you should think about it carefully.” Faced with monitor He Mingbin’s repeated words, Xiao Xia firmly persisted in her decision every time. Her classmates were very moved; the class appraisal group is specially set up; 4 classmates in her class and two schoolmates in her next-door class were chosen to be donated RMB2,000 yuan each, among whom two students only received RMB1,000 yuan, and the rest of RMB2,000 yuan was donated to a poor student in her hometown. In early 2015, Jiang was 100 years old. Xiao Xia, with the support of her parents, took out her retirement allowance to hold a birthday banquet for her and invited the old people over the age of 60 to attend.

Xiao Xia’s story aroused strong response in her university. In order to carry forward the traditional virtue of respecting the young and loving the young and transfer the positive energy, Xiao Xia’s Party branch established “the Party Member Service Team”. Gradually, student Party members in other Party branches, student cadres, Youth Volunteers Association, and Love Foundation have joined this team; then “Xiao Xia’s” Piety & Love Practicing Team was established.

The reporter knows that there are 2 obligatory teaching teams and 2 service groups practicing care and love under the authority of Xiao Xia’s Piety & Love Practicing Team. Since it was established two years ago, there have been over 2,800 volunteers participating in relevant activities. “Xiao Xia’s” Piety & Love Practicing Team has declared “the Chinese Song Qingling’s Foundation · Starbucks Youth Leadership Project” successfully and gained “Furong Students · Public Welfare Action Award” of league committee in the year of 2016.

Though I’m a graduate, I’ll stick with the loving wherever I am and hope that our team can do more meaningful things.” said Xiao Xia.
