Past Events – United In Difference, held in 2013

At TEPC, we believe in sharing and mutual caring. We think that photography is part of a larger social interaction and that we must be engaged in our community. As we met the children in St. Anne, we were struck by the depth of their emotion, and how lively, they can be, behind their condition. We were touched by the dedication and passion of the volunteers in charge of them.

展出目的
TEPC(Taipei Exchange Photography Club)

雖是集合一群來自不同年齡、 國籍、 文化背景的攝影愛好者的小團體, 然而, 我們卻擁有相同的理念:分享與相互關懷。
藉著攝影,我們除了彼此分享影像與攝影心得,同時,我們這個小團體也覺得關注這個與我們生息與共的大團體—我們的社會,並盡我們的心力維護社會的合諧,是我們的責任。

最近,有機會拜訪了聖安娜之家並與受聖安娜之家照顧的孩子們相處,我們驚訝於孩子們不畏疾病摧殘仍展現出堅忍的生命力,以及義工們默默付出, 盡心盡力的照顧孩子們的熱誠,這一切都一直使我們深深感動著。

基於我們堅信的理念:分享與相互關懷,以及聖安娜之家給我們的啟示,我們也願意踏出我們這個小團體對社會關懷的第一步——透過影像的展出實踐我們對社會的關懷責任。 期待這次展出United in Differences,除了給聖安娜之家帶來一些鼓勵, 也希望藉此次展出, 與社會大眾分享關懷所帶來的喜樂。

Father G. Beunen, St. Anne’s Home

When preaching around Taiwan, Father G. Beunen saw many handicapped children living without proper care. The idea of setting up a nursing home just popped out of his head. However, there wasn’t enough financial support in Taiwan. Father Beunen therefore came back to Holland to raise more funds. Finally, with more contributions from the churches and the kind- hearted people in Holland and Taiwan, Father Beunen built St. Anne’s Home faithfully in 1972 in Taiwan.

Today, Sister Petronelli  is leading the establishment and around 30 people are working there as full-time staff.  Many volunteers help caring for the around 40 pensioners.

聖安娜之家成立柯修女就幫助白神父照顧這些院生. 目前可以生活自理的院生,住在社區家園由教保員及柯修女協助.They succeeded the spirit Father Beunen insisted on:

” Jesus’s words: Whenever you did this to these little ones who are my brothers and sisters , you did it to me.”  They continue to provide a loving “home”, where the seriously retarded children are well taken care of, where the children share the warmth of a family.
