If you have to do one thing what it would be?
Looking in their innocence, I would say “how I’d love to be a child once more”. Every time they smile and laugh with your simple gestures, on how easily would give their trust whenever you want to carry and play with them. How free-spirited they are, just running around and not to mention how charming they can be.
Children always have a special place in my heart, there is something about them that fascinates me, and whenever I see them, it would reminds me of how life can be simple with not much of complications.
Sadly, not everything it should be as be, especially how greatly affects them of the situations they didn’t choose.
Recently, I had the opportunity to see and visit Cebu City Medical Center (CCMC) a government hospital which caters and gives services to the citizens of Cebu City. The hospital is situated in the office of the Bureau of Fire Protection temporarily because of 2013 earthquake incident though now they are on the process of building the new hospital just across. Far from now I would say based on what I’ve seen and observed not the typical set-up that a patient could have, nevertheless it’s discouraging but it gave me an eye opener to see the real situation and on what I can do or what we can do.
What we can do?
I was deeply moved by an american friend and his commitment to serve Filipinos in his own simple ways. Significantly, having heart for children especially those who are in greatly need. Believing that addressing their need could give them a new hope not only for the child but also to the family, as we are called to love and serve as Jesus did.
“Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” –Matthew 20:28
“Now, that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.” – John 13:14-15
