Trip to Philippines Sara Sze F.6D "The difficulty in life is the choice", written by T. Moore. Do you agree with that? How about the people who don't even have any options since they were born? Sara Sze from F.6D went to Philippines with 30 Oxfam Club members and 10 facilitators including Kristin Chan from F.7C to explore more about Philippines Rice Industry. It was really an unforgettable experience to me! In the first day of our visit, we went to the dumping site in Manila. It was like any landfill sites in Hong Kong.

We stayed there for 5 days. The village is beautiful, farms and hills are nearby, fresh air you breathe in; everything is simple. It was quite an experience; I have never thought that I could live without electricity for 5 days long. We used rain water for bathing, we used kerosene lamp to illumine at night, we used hoe for farming, we lived with animals like chickens, cows.

Conclusion

In these 5 days, we had a great time together. The day we left the village, we all cried; though we are still keeping contact with her and other villagers by mail. In these seven days of visit, I know more about the agriculture industry in Philippines; and at the same time, I experienced the village life. It is coming to the action time; we will organize activities to promote Fair Trade (the theme of this year programme) both in the community and in school. For anyone who is interested in helping in organizing these activities, to give a hand to those who are in need, please contact Sara Sze, 6D.
