GK apartment

 

這是我們第二次拜訪GK公寓,這公寓是由政府和NPO支持的計畫,資助貧困家庭,提供他們住宿。因為我們去的時間點剛好學校已經開學了,所以只剩正在做手工藝的婦人和學齡前的小孩。現場有一些婦人正在做手工藝是知名演員贊助他們這個計畫,不同鑰匙圈上有著不同的國旗,代表這些鑰匙圈會分別被送到國旗上的國家販賣。在這個計畫中,住在公寓的人可以靠著自己的力量,賺取金錢。

 

This is our second time to visit the GK apartment. The government and NPO support this apartment project. They help the poor family living here. In this time, most children are in the school, so there are some women are making the craftsmanship. The famous actor sponsor this project. There are different flags in the key rings. It means these would sell in the country of flags. In this project, living in the apartment who can earn money by themselves instead of always get the help from others.

 

 

 

 

 

這次,我們拜訪了兩個家庭,第一個是在這裡住了兩年的家庭,他們本來也是住在這附近,但由於兩年前發生了大火,很多人的房子都付之一炬,所以他們就搬到這間由政府資助的公寓。現在共有四個成員住在這間,分別是受訪的婦人和她的老公、兒子以及女兒的小孩(一歲兩個月)。她的女兒現在在杜拜工作,所以就由她照顧孫子,她每天都會和女兒視訊,維繫感情。事實上,菲律賓人在家庭關係上是很緊密的,她很擔心她的女兒一個人到外地工作,因為這是她女兒第一次去國外工作而且又是一個人,如果換做我是她女兒,大概沒辦法做到這樣的事吧!這讓我想到,菲律賓人常常跟我說,當妳沒有選擇的時候,就必須去做,因為現實就是如此,我想這也是菲律賓人天性樂觀的關係。我們問她住在這裡開心嗎?她說她很快樂。

 

This time, we visit two families. The first family has been living here for two years. They originally lived nearby this apartment, but there was a fire two years ago. Many houses were burned, so they moved to this apartment. There are four members living in this room now, the woman who was interviewed by us, her husband, her son, grandson (one year and two months years old). Her daughter is working in Dubai. She takes care of her grandson. Every day, she keeps in touch with her daughter by video. In fact, Filipino are very close in family relationship. She is worried about her daughter because this is the first time she worked abroad as well as she is alone living there. If I am the daughter I cannot do it. Filipino often tell me when you don't have any choose the only way is that you have to do it because this is a real world. Anyway, we ask her ‘' Are you happy living here?'' She answered is ‘'Yes''.

 

 

 

 

 

另一個家庭是一家五口,媽媽和四個小孩住在一起。他們已經住在這地方五年之久,在還沒搬到這裡之前,媽媽她先以無支薪的方式幫忙建造這座公寓,總共工作了兩千多個小時,而且並不是每個人都可以搬來,因為太多人想搬進來,所以必須以抽籤的方式,還有幫忙的程度來決定誰可以搬進來,且並不是搬進來就是永久居民,三十年之後他們就必須搬出去。

 

 

 

 

 

這次的體驗課,讓我學到珍惜眼前的一切,享受當下,快樂的過每一天。
