The world of Tzu Chi (Vol.107)

WarmthAmidst the Winter Cold Tzu Chi volunteers in Shenzhen, China, held 17 sessions of winter distribution from December 19 to 23, 2018, for environmental conservation workers from over 6,000 households across 9 areas. The city has a total green space of 38,695 hectares, which accounts for over 43% of its total area, averaging 18.3 square metres per person. After the onslaught of Super Typhoon Mangkhut in September 2018, the environmental conservation workers have been working tirelessly to restore the city green space with full dedication. It warmed their hearts to receive the red envelope of blessings and wisdom, cash card, hand moisturizer, and hand-sewn scarf presented to them by volunteers, in appreciation of their efforts in conserving the environment. Despite her mobility difficulty, an 82-year-old elderly woman made it a point to present the scarves to the recipients personally, to express her heartfelt gratitude towards their contributions.
