Meanwhile, Director Fu Guirong brings up some hopes and requirements for our team on behalf of the Party Committee of Health Commission of Zhengzhou City. First, we should establish political consciousness, and practice the spirit of China Medical Team “Fearless to difficulties, willing to sacrifice, heal the wounded, love boundlessly”, and keep our mission in mind, complete the great task our country endows upon us. Second, we should unite as one. This six months’ training has proved that we are a solid team, but still we are going to face a lot more new difficulties and challenges when starting to work abroad, so we must build our own cultural and spiritual foundation, and only through that can we become a real team and a cohesive team, and be able to finish our job. Third, we should always remember and follow orders and principles, it is strictly forbidden to act against regulations, all members are expected to carry out the rules and regulations concerning foreign affairs and medical team. Fourth, team members should take care of themselves, and serve the assisted nation properly. Fifth, while we are doing our clinical work, we are also expected to take on training work, too. We could bring advanced medical concepts to the people in Africa, and leave something that can’t be taken away.
In the end, Director Fu Guirong makes a promise on behalf of Party Committee of Health Commission of Zhengzhou City and the units which send out our team members: we will work without worries, because we can rely on our strong support back home when it comes to families, and our support will make us feel like even if we have to leave our families temporarily, more family members are joining us and becoming one, and the support is our leaders. All of them are waiting for the moment of our return and sharing of our accomplishment.
On May 29th, our medical team is ready to go and receives the inspection from Health Commission of Zhengzhou City. We will keep this day, and the expectations in mind, we will never forget about our great mission, and spread the love of China, express the culture and spirit of Henan and Zhengzhou, and bring health, new concepts to Zambia, while bring back the whole team, honor and happiness.
We are looking forward to the day when we report our work and accomplishment to Director Fu Guirong and our leaders again when we come back a year later!
