Commonweal program turns old residences into 'themed buildings'

    Old residences on Xidu Street, Fengxian, are being revamped into themed buildings by commonweal organizations.

    Earlier this month, a non-profitable program was launched at Pujiang Garden and a dozen commonweal organizations signed up to help. Each of them would be responsible for the facelift for a certain part of the community.

    Tengfei Arts Training Center, a participant of the program, has worked in the community before. They wrapped wires with plastic leaves and flowers and painted the stairways like an indoor garden.

    Local residents welcome the changes.

    More organizations, such as Qiushi Seal Workshop from Shanghai Normal University, Xidu Red Cross Society and Nantang Drama Club now have also lent a hand with the program.
