Big smiles from Uncle Lin!

文字-A A +A

After living alone in a foreclosed house for over 10 years, devoid of any water or electricity, Lin Chuan-ming (林傳明) – Uncle Lin - finally had something to smile about. Dozens of teachers and students from WuFeng University (吳鳳科技大學) paid a visit to Uncle Lin, where they cleaned up the house and courtyard, as well as providing him a little bit of winter companionship. Students were participating as part of WuFeng’s Social Resources and Volunteer syllabus, but many of the students were quick to realize that a "social service" should not be wrapped under the illusion of a way to gain credits. Second year Hospitality Management student Chen Wen-hsuan (陳玟瑄) worked meticulously in the dark bathroom, where she helped scrub the toilet and bathtub; she was visibly moved as she grappled with the reasons for grandpa Lin’s seemingly desperate living environment.

WuFeng University and Huashan Social Welfare Foundation (華山基金會) have enjoyed good interaction and cooperation for a very long time. Uncle Lin is a client of the Huashan Foundation’s Minxiong Division (民雄), but this particular activity was the brainchild of campus service learning group teacher, Chen Ya-wen (陳雅文), and general education teacher Wang Si-qi (王思琪), whose first job was to raise funds. The operation was then handed over to Huashan, which also managed to acquire some donated goods, including a quilt, water, and other daily necessities. 2nd year student He Ya-wen (何雅雯) discovered that Uncle Lin was relying merely on sweet potato leaf for greens, so on this visit they made a point of bringing some cabbage seedlings which they planted together with Uncle Lin; hopefully Uncle Lin will have some delicious cabbage greens to eat in the future.

“Uncle Lin not only lives alone in very poor conditions, but he has also suffered with cataracts for many years, for which he’s yet to receive any medical treatment, consequently resulting in his present blurred vision. Not only this, the house he lives in at present has been foreclosed for some time, and so he face the prospect of homelessness at any moment. We really need to inject more love and funds into social poverty,” said Huashan Foundation’s Minxiong Division Supervisor Lin Ya-ru (林雅茹).

阿公笑了,都是你(妳)們害的啦! 影音

獨居在一棟沒水、沒電的法拍屋十餘年的林傳明阿公,終於露出寒冬中的笑容,這是幾十位吳鳳科技大學師生,前後努力幫阿公整理環境和膚慰陪伴下的結果,這群吳鳳科大的同學,從通識的志願服務課程中,領悟出「社會服務」不應該被包裹在「服務時數」的假象下,細心的餐管科二專一A同學陳玟瑄,在最黑暗的衛浴間,努力幫阿公刷洗馬桶浴缸,還不時哽咽阿公的生活環境為何如此糟糕。

吳鳳科技大學通識課程與華山基金會,長久以來都有良好互動與合作關係,林傳明阿公是華山民雄站的個案,這次透過校園力量的動員,在服務學習組陳雅文老師、通識課程王思琪老師的規畫下,先在校內勸募發票與現金,交與華山統一運用,此次再勸募物資,在寒冬中幫林傳明阿公添厚被、暖暖包、飲用水、乾糧等阿公日常所需。二年級的何雅雯同學,在初勘阿公的生活環境後,發現阿公只靠幾株地瓜葉補充纖維素,這次她特別帶來幾棵高麗菜苗,和同學一起種在容器裡,希望長大後的高麗菜,能幫阿公加菜。
華山民雄站站長林雅茹表示:其實阿公不但獨居,生活環境差,其實他罹患多年的白內障病情,迄今依然無法就醫,其視力日漸模糊,而且其居住的房子是親友已遭法拍的房子,隨時有無家可歸的窘境,需要社會更多愛心的注入。
