DDSGermany e.V. with many club activities. Convivial rounds bring good results...

Four years ago, a non-profit association was founded in the cozy town of Hamminkeln in Germany on the Lower Rhine to promote movement in German-Philippine relations. This is proving to be a motor for the ever-improving relations between Germany and the Asian island state with almost 7700 islands, the Philippines. The special: DDSGermany e.V. helps people who are in need - in both countries. Also the victims of occasional flood disasters in the Philippines are supported by DDSGermany e.V. in the best possible way.

Today I have an appointment with Mrs. Elizabeth Falk. She was born in the Philippines and has been living in Germany for many years. Mrs. Falk knows both countries and feels at home in both countries. So she had the idea to found the association DDSGermany to promote the cultural exchange between both countries and above all to help people who are in need in the Philippines or Filipinos who are in need here. During the last devastating storm catastrophe in the Philippines the association called for donations and the money was donated to the flood victims.

1) Oliver Gaebe,
"Good day Elizabeth. Nice that you have today time for our discussion, please introduce yourselves once.

Elizabeth Falk,
"I am Elizabeth, married and have a son. I come from the Philippines, but have lived in Germany for about 35 years. I work in the cosmetics industry and am responsible for our non-profit association DDSGermany.

2) Oliver:
"Elizabeth, what is so special about your DDSGermany e.V., what are the people in Germany or the Philippines allowed to imagine and hope for? Who are your leading members?

"I should explain "e.V." = it is a registered association (which only carries out something good and serving the general public). The special thing about our association is that we support our compatriots here in Germany as well as globally and also (e.g. in need) Germans in the Philippines. We are a highly motivated association, everybody supports everybody and everybody wants to help. At DDSGermany the structure looks like this:

Elizabeth Falk:

Don Macamo Visaya:

Cheeryll Loseto Jo:

Janet Horst:

Juanita Leonhardt:

Erlinda Grill:

Nelson Jeralve:

Ella Alreda:

Marcel Fenchel, Frankfurt:

3) Oliver:
"That is already a concentrated force of committed personalities! Elizabeth, what are then the main goals of the association in Germany Elizabeth."

"Our main goal is to help as many people as possible, that can be Germans or Filipinos. We also support Germans in the Philippines who, for example, got into problems or became ill. If Filipinos in Germany are in need or need advice and support, we will gladly use our network to provide the best possible help to those affected".

4) Oliver:
"How long does your exist then already and can interested also honorary engage themselves?"

"Our association exists for four years, attained somewhat later the non-profit character. We are pleased however on further active members, who can help also gladly with the association organization. Germans who are married, for example, are also welcome, because they know both cultures. Also from other countries we invite nice helping people to join us."

5) Oliver:
"Sounds good! What does the membership at DDSGermany cost? And do all members have to speak English?"

"We are very happy about new members. You are very welcome. The membership costs 2,20US $ per month and no, our members do not necessarily have to speak English. But it is better, we are internationally active."

6) Oliver:
"Elizabeth, can you tell us about the past? What was the most spectacular project of DDSGermany, how can you help people in the Philippines or even all over the world?"

"The best was an action in which we were able to provide hundreds of people with necessary vaccinations through our Medical Mission in a village in the Philippines, had long overdue dental treatments carried out and distributed many vitamins, especially to the elderly and children. We also help to the best of our ability in the event of occasional floods".

7) Oliver:
"Wooow, sounds very nice Elizabeth! What is your personal vision for the association DDSGermany and how do you want to grow further?"

"The best way is to gain as many active members as possible and our vision is to support our government here in Germany and from all countries in Europe and the Philippines in the best possible way and to help as many people as possible, Germans, Europeans and Filipinos, together. We are there where there is need and we help where people are in need".

8) Oliver:
"Very good. Let's take a final look at the Philippines, what is the current situation in the island state and how do you see the country in 2025 or even better in 2030?"

"A lot has changed in the Philippines in the last four years, the infrastructure has improved a lot, has been and is constantly being optimized. We have been able to improve the situation through the mission and vision of President Duterte Build'Build'Build. Our goal is to improve the standard of the people on the 7641 islands (!) of our country. At the same time, we also want to prioritize environmental protection more and more in the planning processes of all developments. I hope and wish that environmental protection in the Philippines will continue to improve in the years until 2030. In fact, more and more efforts are being made to take really effective measures for e.g. sewage treatment and waste disposal".

"Dear Elizabeth, many thanks for the interview and much success for your association and the Philippines."

Bellacoola Film Production UG from Cologne in Germany has become known as an experienced film production company with excellent references. Focus: Travel and science. Since a few years a department "Economy" has been added and deals with the reasons for the significantly decreased competitiveness of the German industry. Even future technologies, such as the aerospace industry, are not sufficiently supported, and politicians obviously lack the will to act.
