Ever since its establishment in 2010, the Caring Moms volunteer service team from Nanchang, east China's Jiangxi province, has been extending their warmth and caring to help ethnic minority students, who leave their home to study in the city, get less homesick.
The team was originally set up by Liu Heping, 64, and along with other residents in Shangfanglu, a community in Nanchang, they mostly help students from southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region.
As of now, the team has signed up over 100 members and given compassionate care and assistance to over 4,000 visitors from Tibet.
Liu hopes that in the future, more kindhearted people can join the team so as to bring greater benefits to the young Tibetan students studying in the city.
