フィリピンにクリスマスカードとプレゼント Long-term relationship with Filipino

leave a comment »

We have been in touch with two groups in the Philippines, one in Manila and the other is in Cebu. At Christmas time we send Christmas cards  and some donated items (towels, toys, clothes, etc. ) . Usually we buy big boxes to send them there. This time our delivery was late and the boxes arrived after Christmas but recipients were very happy.

私たちはマニラとセブにあるグループとつながり、クリスマスカードとタオル、おもちゃ、服などを送っています。人が2人は入る箱に入れて送ります。2016年は忙しく、少し送るのが遅れてしまい、クリスマスには間に合わなかったのですが、もらった人たちには喜んでいただけました。

Wheelchair flew to Korea 韓国へ飛んだ車いす

leave a comment »

DSCN6116I took a wheelchair to Hanboet Foundation in Seoul through ‘Go!Fy!Wheelchairs’ which I founded in 1998. Hanboet now has a ‘wheelchair center’ in Myanmar and the one I took will be delivered to a person there later. This time I ran 10km marathon in Gyeongju under the tunnel of cherry blossoms and enjoyed talking to friends in Busan and Seoul.

札幌のNGO「飛んでけ!車いす」の会から、韓国のハンボツ財団に車いすを持っていきました。ハンボツ財団は昨年からミャンマーに車いすセンターを作り、この車いすも後からミャンマーに送られます。今回は慶州のマラソンに出て、桜のトンネルを10km走り、釜山とソウルで友人たちと楽しく懇談しました。

10月、11月にフィリピンへ送った物のうち、クリスマスプレゼントとして児童養護施設のナヨン・カバターンに届いた写真です。日ハムの揃いのT-シャツ、かわいいね!

We sent some goods to Manila and here’s a photo of children wearing Nippon Ham Fighters’ T-shirts at Nayon Ng Kabataan, Chileren’s Home.

ショート映像作成 Short Film Shooting

leave a comment »

整備講座の後、障がい者と健常者の出会いと健常者の意識の変化を描いた映像撮影をしました。市素人俳優さんたちですが、数回撮るうちに演技も上手になりました。セブ市の「シノログ映画祭」にも出品する予定で、緊急に編集した10分バージョンのできはかなり良いと思います。

After the maintenance clinic training, we shot a short video about meeting of the disabled and the non-disabled and changing of his concept towards PWDs. (People with disabilities) All the actors were amateurs but they really acted well after taking a few shots. This short film clip  are registered for Sinulog video and photo contest, so we made a quick 10 minutes version, which we think rather good.

projects in Cebu セブ市でのプロジェクト

leave a comment »

We came to Cebu, Philippines on Jan.5 for wheelchair maintenance clinic and advocy film clip shooting. We had participants from Talisay City as well as from Cebu City. About half of them were dissabled, but people helped each other very well. All were really interested in maintenance and making upholstery, such as sheets and armchairs. They were so enthusiastic and we ended up buying two sets of machines for each group. We hope they will keep practicing and serve the people with disabilities.
1月5日からフィリピンのセブ市で車いす整備技術を教え、シートやアームレスト制作も教えました。セブ市だけでなく、隣のタリサイ市からも参加者がいて、約半分は何等かの障がいがありますが、お互いに助け合ってがんばりました。全員が非常に熱心に学び、がんばったので、電動ミシンなどの機械や工具を2セット買うことになりました。今後も訓練を続けて、障がい者の役に立つことができるように祈ります。

TV show with Bobit

TV show with Bobit

We were quite busy in Cebu. We visited rehabilitation center in Talisay City, mentally challanged organization, Braille center, Voctional Training Center, and facility for poor and abandoned children. Furthermore I was on TV show with Bobit – Adela’s brother, talking about Go!Fly! and Neighbors activities for an hour.

セブ島では忙しく多くの施設を訪問しました。知的障がい児施設、視覚障がい者学校、国立の障がい者訓練施設、貧しい障がいのある子ども、捨てられた子どもなどの施設とリハビリテーションセンターです。ホストのアデラさんの兄のボビットさんのテレビ番組にも1時間出ました。
