As the influx of relief goods are overflowing for the Mandaya and Mansaka tribe,the highlight of the day was the liberating discovery of a community that had beenbowed by the brutality of Typhoon Pablo and overwhelmed by the acts of kindnessby NGOs and charitable organizations. The sad fact was that the calamityhad brought them to the verge of unwanted mendicancy. The community life hadstarted to revolve around the intermittent visits of well-meaning organizations thatbring food and used clothing. Three weeks ago when I last visited them, there wasa growing heaviness in the community that weighed down considerably on eachmember. This afternoon, after the usual polite exchanges, I brought them around toface the question of what they saw as happening to them in the next 90 days, andhow about the next 180 days? They were very quiet. Until the civic leaderreminisced that they were very good farmers, tilling the hard slopes and harvestingrichly from the land. The spiritual leader recalled how households would befattening a pig and selling it for a tidy profit after a while for some householdprojects. Suddenly they realized that they were once a vibrant village and they had
so many things going. They had to be brought back to the question. What do theysee happening to them in the next 90 days? It was a priceless moment for me to seethe community leaders stir up and then like divers who have reached the deep end,rise slowly and surely to the surface to gasp for air - and breathe life again. Theyhave come to see beyond the confines of charity and reach out with their hands to afuture they can handle. We meet again on Monday morning. They now havespecific tasks to do and I know they will do them well. Liberating discovery. – LisaManunciaECare has been to Compostela.http://henrymanuncia.impactphilippines.net/2013/03/16/what-the-tree-did/They were only asking for seeds.
