Foreign students from Jiangsu University participated in activities to mark Chongyang Festival at the Taigushan Residential Community in Zhenjiang City on Oct. 16, including serving drinks to the elderly in the community.

A day to pay respect to seniors, the Chongyang Festival, also known as Double Nine Festival, falls on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, Oct. 17 this year.

Jiangsu University students from Russia, Pakistan, Ghana, Guinea and other countries visited the community and joined local volunteers to cook special dishes for 30 aged people who lived alone or were widowed. Students also developed a deeper understanding of China’s tradition of respect for the elderly ahead of the festival.
