China has a rapidly ageing population. As a young, healthy person, Yang Mingming had a strong desire to help them. She began volunteering at an old people’s nursing home when she was a student and is now actively involved in the Banshan National Nursing Home. She supports the staff there and regularly contacts the residents to keep their spirits up.
