(DALIANNEWS)- Wakasaya Risa, a 18-year-old Japanese girl received a special present of a volunteer certificate of fighting against the COVID-19 in a local community in Dalian, March 2, 2020.

Wearing a red jacket specially for local volunteers, Wakasaya Risa, a 18-year-old Japanese girl who is living at Yannan Community in Lingshui Neighborhood in Dalian high-tech industrial zone has been recently busy volunteering at Oriental Santa Clara Residential Area where she resides.

She also drew a humorous cartoon diary to show her volunteer work in the community and her confidence to overcome the epidemic as soon as possible.

Wakasaya Risa has been paying close attention to the prevention and control of the epidemic in her community. When seeing the notice of recruiting volunteers in her community on February 12, she took the initiative to apply for the volunteer work with her mother. 

At that time, Wakasaya Risa was still four days to her 18th birthday. The community suggested that she should protect herself at home, but Wakasaya Risa's mother said firmly that "It doesn't matter. After four days, she can also contribute to our society." In this way, Wakasaya Risa became a volunteer of the prevention and control of the COVID-19 in her community on February 16, the day of her 18th birthday.

Wakasaya Risa together with her mother arrived at the checkpoint of Oriental Santa Clara every morning, helping to check body temperatures of residents and permits of the residents and vehicles. 

She has never mentioned any tiredness nor hard work during her volunteer work in the past half a month. What she expressed most during this period was her gratitude to the community workers for their hard work.

Dalian is an international city with over 20,000 permanent foreigners at present. During the epidemic period, many expats in Dalian choose to stay here and join the volunteer team for prevention and control of the COVID-19 together with the locals, showing their strong support to China and great confidence in China's unprecedented efforts for epidemic control.
