Community Official Endeavors to Improve Lives of Local Citizens, Soldiers
Fu Lifen []

A female official from central China's Hubei province has been praised by local residents for carrying out community work at the grassroots level, caring for households and going beyond her normal duties.

Fu Lifen is the secretary of the Party branch, as well as its director, in the Hui community of the city of Xiangyang in Hubei.

Under her guidance, the community has gained over 49 honors, including the Provincial Unity and Improvement Award and the title of Outstanding Grassroots Party Organization in Xiangyang.

She has also been awarded with many honors personally.

In 2017, the government of Xiangyang started a project which strictly prohibited businesses from operating on the side of the road, so officials decided to dismantle temporary houses built along Yangtze River Avenue.

Fu mobilized citizens to move all their goods, barbecue grills and other materials that occupied the streets, to inside, and promised to help them restore operations as soon as possible.

She reported to her superior to establish five stores to help citizens operate indoors, thus preventing acting tough against unauthorized construction and causing much dissatisfaction and resentment in the locality.

Furthermore, to strengthen the community's security Fu founded a special group early this year. She also actively responded to a call to create closer ties between the military and civilians. She, along with other women in the community, sent water to nearby soldiers and helped them sew and wash their clothes.

Over the past several decades, she has got through three sewing machines and sewed thousands of items for soldiers, many of whom would bid her a grateful farewell before leaving or retiring from the army. Under her guidance and influence, many of the young people in the community want to join the army. So far, a total of 13 new recruits have been sent to the army in recent years.
