In our community, there are some people like this: they always get up the earliest in the morning, no matter in freezing winter or sultry summer; they care the most about the convenience of every household, be it on workdays or holidays; and they are always ready to share clients’ worries and help solve problems cautiously and conscientiously, however sundry their own domestic affairs might be.


Lovely worker

They live in city communities, big or small; however, they do not belong to the communities they are in, or the cities.

On March 8th, the International Women’s Day, to express a common community resident’s gratitude and thanks to those industrious workers, we, the On Action International Cultural Center in Wuhan, sent them our sincere festival greetings and exquisite little gifts.

Having learned from the PMO (property management office) that all the women cleaners and sanitation workers have a half-day’s off on March 8th after 11 am, to give them the festival surprise on time, our staff prepared the gifts in advance and planned the delivering time.

At around 11 o’clock, after half a day’s hard work, they came to the lounge, tiredly yet pleasantly, and we followed.

“Hello, everyone! Happy Women’s Day! You have been working very hard. And we really appreciate your contributions to the environment of this society. Please allow us to send you these bouquets and wish you an eternal beauty just like flowers!”

As the staff handed them the flowers, the smile on their faces told us that they were happy and full of joy.

In the afternoon, we went to see if there were any women cleaners or domestic helpers in the community still at work. A busy woman cleaner said, “All the women workers are off today. Only four are on duty. Well, if no one is here, who’s gonna keep the community clean?”

Indeed, as the “beauticians” of the community, their own beauty is often ignored.

When an idling domestic helper received our gifts and greetings while basking with her client, she ran to the client in excitement and cried, “Look, lady! Young girls sent me flowers!”

Maybe they have never received any flowers before, although they are as beautiful as flowers.

 
The lounge is full of love

They are always giving without asking for any recognition and they are always admiring others’ beauty. Now, let us tell them, “You are also beautiful!”
