The novel coronavirus-infected pneumonia (NCIP) affects the lives of hundreds of millions of people. In recent days, more than 30 students from JISU volunteered themselves to join the front line of fighting the new coronavirus disease after the call of “Protect our beautiful home, prevent the disease” from the CYL of Jilin province。
After undergoing thorought raining and various preventative measures, volunteers gradually went to Jilin, Tonghua, Baishan, Siping, Songyuan, Gongzhuling and other places. Under the guidance of relevant departments, they effectively conduct their work, which ranges from preserving public order and taking people’s temperatures in public areas to doing community service and assisting medical investigations, from giving medical support and psychological counseling to transporting and distributing supplies.These JISU volunteers all agreed that they will do their best to curb the spread of the epidemic and win this drawn-out fight.

In the face of this epidemic situation, the volunteers of JISU made a great effort to join in the volunteer work, fully demonstrating the spirit of caring for public welfare that is prevalent at JISU, and making a great contribution to society, which deeply moved me. All of the volunteer of JISU will stick to our post and take practical action to help Jilin province and serve the motherland!

Li Siyuan, a junior majoring in preschool education, is a “Spirit Messenger” of JISU. She wanted to use her experience in counseling her peers to help others during this epidemic. On January 27, she became a youth volunteer of the Jilin Provincial Party Committee of the Communist Youth League for epidemic prevention. She is responsible for psychological counseling. During the pre-training, she realized that the university is very active in serving the community during this time, so she communicated with teachers from JISU's mental health education guidance center. Under the guidance of her supervisor, she wrote and released several articles including "Isolate the Virus but not Love" and “A Letter for the Spirit Messengers of JISU”, leading more than 500 "spirit messengers" to shoulder the heavy burden of fighting against the "epidemic" psychologically. She said: "Although I'm not a professional and I can't fight on the most dangerous front lines like health care workers, I hope that I can rely on my accumulated experience to do what I can to help those in need. The epidemic is still spreading, but I believe that spring is still coming and the flowers will soon bloom again. Come on, Wuhan! Come on, China! "
