Here’s some, good news, to lighten everything UP, in spite, of how everything ELSE had gone to H-E-L-L here! The kindness, the heart of this woman who’d delivered the meals as she hoped to bring some light into others’ lives, truly amazing! Off of the Newspapers, translated…
Mei who retired from the office of UBus heard that the Chiayi Christian Hospital is recruiting crewmembers to make the meal deliveries, and she’d entered in; in five years she’d been making the meal deliveries, she’d also, recruited her loved ones to join in too. She told, the meals we deliver not just gives the elderly persons a meal, but also, the warmth of our greetings to them.
At age sixty-five, Mei told, that as she’d gone to make the deliveries of the meals to the elderly who were in their homes, and some were bedridden, and with the hardships in their household economics, that’s what drove her to want help.
At first, she’d only made the supper deliveries on Wednesday evenings with a senior volunteer with her, then, she took on the entire chain, the lunches and suppers from Monday through Saturday, fifteen packed lunches, and eighteen suppers. Mei told, some of the elders lives alone, with no children around them, and they don’t live in an environment that’s convenient enough, they truly needed the assistance from the outside world.

Mei also pulled her friends onboard the volunteer meal deliver crews, to date, she’d gotten five more partners onboard.
she said, a lot of the elders don’t go out, they don’t have many friends either, and they’d looked forward to seeing the volunteers, because the volunteers not just made the meal deliveries, the volunteers would greet them, to chit chat. And there are the elders who are guarded toward outsiders. She’d used her time, her patience, her kindness, to deliver the meals to them, and now, they’re all friends. She said, even though, she’s a nobody, she still hoped to bring some warmth, using her means, giving the world some positive, energies.
And, this is how powerful ONE is! This is only a woman, who’d started in the meal delivery crews, and in her delivering the meals, she’d noted the needs of the elderly who required this service, and she’d reached out to them, pulled her families, friends, relatives onboard the program, spreading the kindness to others in her life, touching not just those whom she’d delivered the meals to, but also, helped those who volunteered alongside her, to know the importance, of giving to others as well.
