They are going back to China this year, so I came here to see it.””We are very grateful,” said the woman, “and we want to leave a souvenir with our support.”Bahussey Point is small but popular.Bakeries will be closed during the Spring Festival and reopen around the 10th day of the first lunar month.Wu zhengrong said: “I also plan to spend a happy and peaceful Chinese New Year together with my friends in Changsha.”In the blink of an eye, Wu Zhengrong has been in Changsha for 20 years.When Wu zhengrong and his wife Du Xuehui heard about a program for hearing-impaired children at the Hunan Disabled Persons’ Federation in 2002, they submitted their application and came to Changsha, where they stayed for 20 years.After helping many hearing-impaired children, Wu zhengrong found another urgent problem to be solved — many hearing-impaired people who could not regain their hearing and language could hardly integrate into society. They did not have jobs due to lack of skills, and their social circle was limited.Therefore, wu zhengrong and his wife’s new goal is to let the hearing-impaired people have stable jobs and live a dignified life by supporting themselves.”Bread is a common staple food in my hometown and is easy to make.Making bread without having to communicate with others is a great job for the hearing-impaired.”Wu zhengrong said.Mr. Wu and his wife took over the shop from a fellow German and moved it to xiangchun Lane, where rent was cheaper, because of the expensive rent.Wu also invited a German baker to train the students.Hearing-impaired people who come to the store can receive free training and receive a small living expenses during the apprenticeship period. When their skills are mature, they can receive wages like normal workers.The shop has nine employees, five of whom are hearing-impaired, including three bakers, an apprentice and a receptionist.The bakery has been in business for 10 years, and the couple has helped nearly 30 hearing-impaired people train as bakers.Have employee evaluation to say, wu Zhengrong in life is a boss with very human feeling, also meticulous in the job, make craft to bread and kitchen sanitation, it is quite exquisite.At the beginning of 2020, due to the epidemic, Wu Zhengrong was faced with multiple pressures such as rent and staff salary, but he did not think of reducing staff or salary.For Wu zhengrong, this year’s Spring Festival is special – it will be their last in Changsha.Around May, he and his wife will return to Germany.”I heard that the weather will be cold this Spring Festival, but staying at home with my friends in Changsha and having fun with delicious food every day won’t affect my mood too much.”Wu Zhengrong, who is usually busy with his business, said lightly, “It’s a good thing to relax and have a rest during the Spring Festival.”At the same time, he also advised people to spend more time with their families during the holidays and enjoy the precious leisure time.When asked about the reasons for returning to China, Wu said that homesickness was one thing, but more importantly, they saw China’s rapid development and the government’s attention to it. The increasing number of related programs and subsidies, and the help for more deaf children, all accelerated their desire to return to China.”Although I have a lot of sadness in my heart, I can understand, bless and thank the German boss.”Luckily, a German has been found to take over the silent bakery, said a woman who works at the store.This means that in the New Year, love will continue to relay and perform in Changsha.Source | the central radio and television reception international online, rednet (edit 丨 XiaoJuan duty director 丨 amith jj
