country of spirited people 2

元気な人々の国 -その2

2 December 2010, Philippines
Ateneo de Manila High School

I was in a highly rated national hospital in London in early September for a week.  I was taken care of by a team of the British doctors and a group of hard-working nurses – majority of the nurses were from the Philippines.  They were prompt, kind and cheerful.  My experience in the hospital was lifted up by their merrily smiles a lot.

And now in their mother country, many towns and villages are totally devastated and many people are living without safe place, food and water.  I really hope that the help they need and deserve will arrive to them as quickly as possible.

9月に一週間ほど、脳神経科で名高いロンドン市内の国立病院に入院したのですが、治療チームは医師団はイギリス人、看護士&看護婦はダントツでフィリピン人が多かった。彼ら、彼女たちは、きびきびとよく働き、親切で暖かい人たちでした。あの元気な笑顔がなかったら、わたしの入院生活はずいぶんと陰鬱になっていた気がします。

あの人たちの故国が今、大変なことになっている。一刻も早く、安全に眠れる場所や食料や水が被災地に届く事を祈ります。
