2018 Chinese New Year's Eve dinner in Cheng-du

 

The 2018 Chinese New Years’ Eve dinner in Chengdu started off by the dance over the Chinese folk song “Flowers of Jasmine”, as well as Djembe performed by trainees at Eden wool - felt training center in Chengdu , more than 100 seniors from the 3 nearby local communities including Pei-Hua Community, Jian-Cao Community and Yu-Lin Community, gathered together and enjoyed the precious afternoon together and the dinner received lots of positive feedback, for it provides opportunities for them to meet others at the same age and chat pleasantly with each other while enjoying the food.

Eden also serves seniors who live alone, individuals who suffer from mild disabilities, and the caregivers of chronically ill patients. We hope these individuals can benefit from the unending love and care of Taiwan through us. We not only want to provide tangible services but also the warmth of human kindness. Eden is like a second home for many of underprivileged families and elders who live alone, and they and their families feel safe that they can learn here in peace. For local NGOs, volunteers and Eden workers, Eden Taiwan has always worked by their side and cared for them very much. Together we built a home-like environment for those we serve. Through our Chinese New Year’s feast, lonely elders, the underprivileged and caregivers share a meal together like a family during this important time of the year.
