Learn Chinese - History and Culture

The neighbourhood committee (jū wěi hùi 居委会) is a grassroot mass organization in China. In Chinese residential areas both in cities and towns, there are neighbourhood committees.   

With the help of local governments, the neighbourhood committees take care of almost every aspect of the residents'life such as birth control, security and hygiene.And the neighbourhood committee not only solves problems in elder residents daily life,but also helps them live a colourful life.   

There are usually many retired residents who volunteer to serve their neighbours.And many local residents have found that they are increasingly dependent on the various services provided by the neighbourhood committee.Whenever they come to ask for help, they won't be disappointed.

Generally, the neighbourhood committee is something uniquely Chinese. It started early, functions well now, and is about to stay for a long time in the future.
