'Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you~ Happy birthday to you~.” In February 2017, in Penang, Malaysia, several staffs from China International Water & Electric Corp. of China Three Gorges Corporation celebrated the birthday for the baby just one year old together.
I am the baby’s father. I came to Malaysia Penang Mengkuang Dam Expansion Project for the long-term foreign financial work in September 2011. Before going abroad, The period of working aboard determined by the leader in the contract signed before I went aboard is three years. At that time, I thought three years were very long. Now, I have worked aboard for five and a half years, married and given birth to a baby. My child is one year old. Colleagues and friends often say for fun that I harvested the most in this project. Indeed, the work is smooth, and my life is stable. Together with my wife and child, it is ordinary, warm, simple and full. For people who work at home, it may be easier to realize. Abroad, however, in order to realize this seemingly simple good wish, I cannot go without the strong motherland, the concern of the group company and leaders of the headquarters, and the help of colleagues and friends. All this is an individual case, but it is the vivid embodiment of humanistic care in the B&R construction and development.
At 2017 Spring Festival Evening Party, Country sung by Jackie Chan impressed me the most. In lyrics, we all say the country is very big, but in fact it is a home. Yes, our country is very big, but people from different places, at home and aboard and of all ethnic groups form a family. In Malaysia, there are 7,480,000 Chinese people, accounting for 23% of the Malaysian population. Most of these Chinese came to Malaysia in the period of going to Southeast Asia in the history. They are already Malaysians, but they are also concerned about China's major and minor issues. Even Chinese in the vegetable market thumbed up and told me that China launched Shenzhou No. 11 Spacecraft. Some local Chinese joked: 'We are also Chinese like you.' Whenever I hear local friend’s appreciation of the motherland, I will feel proud. Although Malaysian Chinese have the nationality of Malaysia, they speak the same language and learn same traditional culture, and have the same blood, and inherit the same Chinese civilization with us. We are a family. This phenomenon is just humanistic care’s results in the B&R construction and development.
In lyrics, my heart is filled with the country, and I support the family with my hand. It also spoke out our true feeling. As practitioners of the B&R of the motherland, we always represent China's image abroad, and our dam project also shows China’s power to Malaysian people. When I prepared to get married, the company leaders and colleagues helped me to find a way to solve many practical problems, and allowed me to be able to work and live with my wife aboard without the suffering of separation. After temporarily settling overseas I have no family troubles. With gratitude, I work and study harder. I not only finished all the work with good quality, but also learned online in Malaysia, passed the intermediate accountant examination at a time, and passed three specialized courses of CPA at a time. This good state with the balance between overseas work and family shows humanistic care’s role in the B&R construction and development.
Chinese enterprises’ humanistic care in the B&R not only warms each employee's family, but also benefits the local society and people. They donated money and things to the local buddhist organizations, donated donate computers and clothes to Johore Orphanage, donated money to Jit Sin Middle School Concert, donated money to the local flood victims, donated money to Malaysia Association of the Blind... Malaysia Branch of CWE does not forget its social responsibility, actively integrates into the local society, sets up the good enterprise image, and shows the friendly Chinese Style. The spirit of helping each other shows humanistic care in the B&R construction and development.
Chinese enterprises’ humanistic care in the B&R not only benefits the local society and people, but also changes the society. Now in Malaysia, there is no lack of China's construction and manufacturing. Dams, roads, bridges, buildings and high-speed rails built by Chinese enterprises, electrical appliances, mobile phones and toys produced by Chinese enterprises, and Taobao and WeChat of Chinese enterprises are all changing the lifestyle in Malaysia, and making people's life more convenient, healthy, efficient and good. These changes and progress are the indirect impact of humanistic care in the B&R construction and development.
Although I'm just an ordinary member of the B&R great plan, I deeply felt the intangible force of humanistic care. Such humanistic care connects the heart of each family to the country. As sung in Country, the country and families are connected, and create the miracle of the earth together.【马来西亚明光坝扩建项目 供稿：王冠男 图片：蒋晓华】
