Some women volunteers, having an average age of over 50 years old, gather this time, not for their square dancing hobby but to fight the floods in Jiangxi Province.

POYANG, July 13 (Xinhua) — Due to continuous heavy rainfalls, east China's Jiangxi Province raised its emergency response for flooding from level III to level I in just three days. Besides party members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and armed police who are organized to take part in the fight against the flood, a voluntary group made up of elder women in Jiangjialing Village also devote their efforts.

Yu Fengying, team leader of the group, said that they originally got together for square dancing, but they also wanted to make some contributions as they saw so many rescuers spare no effort in fighting the flood. Therefore, these women volunteers, having an average age of over 50 years old, packed sandbags, patrolled the dike, and also took the responsibility of taking care of the daily life of the rescuers.
