Together With Each Other
Hamkke in Korean, Together in English, and Magkasama in Tagalog
We would like to share the news of the Philippine branch that shared Korean culture with people in late January and the news of the short-term volunteer team and Sinappog Hope Farm who worked together.
Tuesday, January 22
Before heading to the Sinappog Hope Farm, the short-term volunteer team was busy wearing sunscreen and changing into the look of farmers in the morning. After arriving at the farm, the team followed the instructions of the local staff to cultivate the field evenly. They planted a crop called ‘okra’ and sweet potatoes, and then pumping water up with the residents, sprinkling water and stamping on the ground around us, finally it was time for lunch. The team ate the lunch prepared by the residents of the city, looked around the village, played basketball, and spent good time with the residents.

At Don Antonio High School, the branch shared Korean culture by cooking 'Gimbab', a typical Korean dish, and 'Dalgona', a childhood favorite snack of Koreans. And to decorate the school in brighter colors, the branch completed the wall painting work. At first, it was awkward wrapping Gimbab together, but after a while, looking at split gimbabs, students bursted out of laughter. From seeing students sharing meal together, decorating the walls, we could see that although our language was different, we could harmonize with one another through sharing.
We look forward to spending time together again
