In order to cultivate the spirit of knowledge, enlighten patriotism among international students, encourage them to participate in social welfare activities, and promote president Xi Jinping's thoughts on the people-to-people exchange, the Lei Feng International Volunteer Association celebrated the 73rd Founding Anniversary of the People's Republic of China.

With the theme "Friendship knows no boundaries" – China's national day celebration took place at the Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics in Nanchang city of China's Jiangxi province, with the overall support and cooperation of the university's Overseas Education School, on Saturday evening. 

Mohammad Saiyedul Islam whose Chinese name is Wudi, a Bangladeshi student studying Ph.D. program in the School of International Trade and Economics at the Jiangxi University of Finance and Economics, took the initiative to form this social welfare organization with the university's students including Chinese and Foreign students.

A special discussion meeting on the Occasion of the 73rd Founding Anniversary of the People's Republic of China was organized with the participation of International and Chinese students and celebrated China's National Day by cutting a cake.

Mohammad Saiyedul Islam (Wudi) said on the auspicious occasion, I extended my heartiest congratulations to the friendly people of China for peace, progress, and prosperity. I think, we foreigners are witnesses and can feel the struggle and hard work done by the Chinese people, and Chinese soldiers to make this great nation and build a common prosperous society all around way under the leadership of the Communist Party of China. "Lei Feng was a soldier in the People's Liberation Army. When we think of Li Feng, we think of selflessness, humility, and dedication." We want to promote president Xi's thoughts on "People-to-People Exchange", practice the "Lei Feng Spirit" in the new era, and promote the "Lei Feng Spirit" to international dissemination by organizing social welfare activities.

Chinese student Kadirya Musajan, a member of the association, said I am honored to be able to participate in the National Day celebration today as a member of the Lei Feng International Volunteer Association, and I am also honored to speak on behalf of Chinese students. It is my second year joining Lei Feng International Volunteer Association. Since its establishment, we have done many interesting and meaningful volunteer services in society. Each activity has benefited people a lot and felt deeply. We learn from each other, progress, and grow together. We are one. Here I want to be grateful for the past, and I hope to have more friends to join us in the future. We can organize more meaningful volunteer service activities.

Guinean student Tonguino Emmanuel said, as an international student, I am happy to be a part of the Lei Feng International Volunteer Association. It's an honor to celebrate the National Day of China with the rest of the Chinese students. As part of the volunteer society, I am happy to provide my hands across China and around the world. To the Chinese people, I say Happy National Day. Thanks to our association president Saiyedul took this initiative and bring opportunities for us. I hope, we all always try to best to provide our helping hands.
