Four of the 10 award-winning stories were displayed to the audience at the event. They were about the women volunteers' efforts in caring for left-behind children whose parents have migrated to other areas for work, bringing warmth to the elderly people, participating in the social governance at grassroots level, promoting environmental protection and joining in the work of targeted poverty alleviation.
Ju Ping, a volunteer and well-known TV hostess, sang the song Me and My Motherland to the accompaniment of a group of students from the Yunhexing Volunteers' Team in Tongzhou District, in Beijing.
