I. Introduction
“Ohanna means family. and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.”
- Lilo and Stitch
The basic unit of the society, a group of people living together under a single
roof, these words defines what a family is, however these are not what truly makes a
family. Rather, it is all about the affection, the love for each other, the feeling of comfort
and safety, and the mutual understanding of each of its members defines the real
essence of a family, even if they are without the ties of marriage. lt may sound so cliché
or stereotypical, but it is a fact that one's family is the only thing one can rely on or lean
on, when everything else seems falling apart. ln times of hardships or arduous trials in
life like poverty, health related problems, the only people that supports us, is no other
than our family. These basic units are not merely there for the procreation of life, but
also act as a support system. For example, such is a truth for some, because despite
the inadequate financial support that they have, they will remain loyal and strong to help
the affected members cope up any underlying problems.
Community service is characterized by the mobilizing of volunteers. Staff roles
are limited to helping volunteers become effective, to guiding the learning of leaders
through the process, and to helping create the mechanism for the group to advocate on
their own behalf. Community service almost always includes confrontation of some sort.
The people who want something get themselves together to ask for it, often the people
who could give them what they want get jumpy. Community service strategies include
meeting with corporate or government decision makers to hold them accountable for
their actions, designing programs for others (not the group) to implement that meet the
needs of the community, and aggressive group action to block negative developments
or behaviors (highway construction that leads to neighborhood destruction, etc.).
Advocacy and Service Delivery are both characterized by doing FOR people.
Often professionals like lawyers or social workers will attack a problem on behalf of
those perceived as unable to speak for themselves. Job referral services, social work,
training for job readiness, homeownership counseling, business plan preparation
training - these are methods which fit into the Advocacy or Service Delivery strategy.
Development is a strategy that gets the group directly into the business of delivering
a physical product. Generally, groups select a development strategy because the normal
course of events is not meeting the area's needs. The profit motive either does not bring
private developers into the area - they can't make enough money - or it brings them in to do
the wrong thing - they are converting moderate cost rental units into yuppie condos.
Development could mean housing or commercial or even industrial development.
Development methods require, like the other two strategies, particular skills. Many groups
have struggled to achieve good results in housing development with staff whose training,
experience and interests are in community service, causing pain and suffering for the group
and the staff. This is unfair. lf we understand the distinction between the strategies, we can
see the different resources needed for the methods that fit within them.
Community service is the process of building power through involving a constituency
in identifying problems they share and the solutions to those problems that they desire;
identifying the people and structures that can make those solutions possible; enlisting those
targets in the effort through negotiation and using confrontation and pressure when needed;
and building an institution that is democratically controlled by that constituency that can
develop the capacity to take on further problems and that embodies the will and the power
of that constituency.
Community service is NOT a technique for problem solving. Those who would use
simple confrontation or mass meetings to meet their own selfish need for power, and skip
the step of democratic involvement and control in the selecting of issues, the crafting of
demands or the negotiating of the victory are called demagogues. Their organizations are a
hollow sham, without the empowering aspect that humanizes and ennobles the effort.
A. Rationale
Helping oneself out is good, but with the assistance of the people around you
makes it more enjoyable and fulfilling. For one's family what's more important than
anything else is being together, even in sickness and in health, in joy and sorrow. No
matter who they are, no matter where they may be and no matter what it takes, a family
fulfills its responsibility for its members' common good. They will have to be pliant as a
bamboo, fiercer than a raging storm, and loving like a mother to a child, to withstand
every obstacle that may come their way.
Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) refers to programs or activities
contributory to the general welfare and the betterment of life for the members of the
community or the enhancement of its facilities, especially those devoted to improving
health, education, environment, entrepreneurship, safety, recreation and morals of the
citizenry. For it provides self-reliance to people in the community in dealing with their
own health. lt also gives the nurse an idea about the health state of a particular family in
certain communities. CWTS deepens the students' relationship with the people they get
to encounter and interact with during their visits. lt allows nurses to practice quality care
and gain their patient's trust. Health teaching in the community may contribute not only
to family's health status but the way these people can adjust to the health needs of the
other members of the family.
The Case Study is mainly directed on identifying and analyzing the families'
problems. The process which includes assessment, diagnosis, planning,
implementation and evaluation are important factors for the student nurses to
accomplish the Case Study's goals which are geared towards the family's optimum level
of functioning in order for them to be productive and self-reliant members of the society
in which they belong. Cooperation of the family, maximizing use of resources and
collaboration with the health care team are essential parts in improving the health status
of the family as well as to alleviate the identified problems.
Barangay Sapalibutad is located at the eastern part of Angeles City and is bounded
on the north of Barangay Cutud. ln the west by Barangay Pulung Cacutud, in the south by
Barangay Capaya and in the east by Barangay Tangle, Mexico Pampanga.
The word Sapalibutad came from the Kapampangan language which means 'small creek',
and was named to this Barangay. Because there was a small creek in the middle of the
barangay which is located on the boundary of Purok 2- Sitio Centro, and Purok 3- Sitio
Canatba. Many people coming on the said creek we're taking a bath and washing their
clothes every day, which signifies a great source of clean water.
Barangay Sapalibutad presently consists of ll Sitio/ Purok namely: Sitio Cubul, Sitio
Centro, Sitio Canatba, Sitio Cabio Bakal, Sitio Dungca, Canatba Ville, Sitio New Site, Sitio
Resettlement, J. Sanchez Compound, Pavillion Relocation Site, Sameera Subdivision.
ln l8
century, Barangay Sapalibutad only have 5 sitios namely: Sitio Cubul, Sitio Centrong
Baryo, Sitio Lipat Sapa (Canatba), Sitio Cabio Bakal, and Sitio Mauli Lele llog Bale Maragul.
ln l972, in the 40-day rainy season, the Sitio Mauli Lele llog Bale Maragul was washed out
because the river expanded causing many houses to be destroyed. Most of the residences
of this barangay are farmers, sugar cane growers and fishermen making these as their
primary source of livelihood.
ln l99l, when Mount Pinatubo erupted, many residents are affected because their means
of living are affected by the lahar rage. Sitio Cabio Bakal was the most devastated among
puroks of the barangay. Because of this, most residents were relocated to another place
which is now called the Sitio new Site (Purok 6).
ln l992, Mr. June Sanchez and Mr. Gerard Heinen decided to invest business here in
Sapalibutad. They constructed many buildings for a company named NEOART Corporation.
Many of their workers decided to reside in Sapalibutad which led to the formation of the new
sitio known now as Sitio J. Sanchez Compound.
ln 2005, the city government under the administration of the former city mayor, Carmelo
"Tarzan" Lazatin, relocated some residents from Barangay Ninoy Aquino to Sapalibutad
leading to the establishment of another sitio called Sitio Pavillion.
ln 2008, Globe Asiatique Corporation invested a business developing an agricultural land
here into an industrial subdivision, the Sameera Subdivision. The company donated a two-
storey building which is now utilized as the Barangay Hall of Sapalibutad.
ln 2009, Mr. Rogelio Ayson, invested a new business in form of a private memorial park
named as St. Uriel memorial Park located in Sitio Cabio Bakal.

II. !arrative Story
A. Bac"round In#ormation
lt was a sunny day when our group with our Professor went to our assigned
community for Civic Welfare Training Service. Our professor oriented us on what to expect
in our visit and introduced us to the Barangay officers of Sapalibutad so that we will be able
to work comfortably with them in the community. Our adopted family lives at #l79
Mississippi St., Sitio Pavillion, Sapalibutad, Angeles City. They've been residing at
Sapalibutad since 2000. According to the eldest child, when it comes to their daily
necessities they get their money from their mother's salary from her work as a laundrymaid.
She also told us that their father left them when they were small. She doesn't remember
why their father left them. She is the one who's responsible when their mother is not around.
The mother is Rosalie Oray, according to her daughter, she is 38 years old. She also stated
that her mother is a laundrymaid at the other barangay. The eldest daughter is Renses Oray
she is l5 years old. She is 3
year highschool, she loves to write and sing with Ariane Jane.
Ariane Jane is l2 years old. She is studying at Sapalibutad Elementary School, she also
helps in doing the household chores when their mother is not around. Next to Ariane Jane is
Renjielyn Joy she goes to the same school with Ariane, she is l0 years old. She loves to
play outside the house with her brother Ronnel, a 6 years old boy. Her eldest sister teaches
her how to read and write during weekends.
B. Observation !otes
$ay 1 %Se&tember 1'( )*1+,
lt was our first day of exposure to the chosen community for our section. For us, it
was no longer a new situation because we we're already exposed to this kind of community
because of our duty in the community in our curriculum for our nursing course. lt was no
surprise that the assigned community for us is one of the depressed barangays in the city.
On our observation, the barangay lacks cleanliness and organization. lt was very evident
that the community was very dirty and trashes were scattered on the streets and there are
flies all over. We also saw many children walking and playing in the streets barefooted.
As the day goes on, we were introduced to the community leaders and assigned us
to the family that we are going to handle. We were assigned to the Mallari family. They were
residing in Mississippi about 6 blocks away from the day care center. As we walk towards
the house, we noticed that the streets going to their house is small and that there are
garbage everywhere and the drainage system is clogged. Finally, we were able to arrive at
the house of the family assigned to us. But, unfortunately, we were not able to meet the
head of the family. We were just able to meet the four children. That day ended and we
were only able to get insufficient information about the family.
$ay ) %Se&tember )1( )*1+,
On this day, we were still not able to meet the mother because she left early for her
work as a laundry maid. Were only able to talk to the eldest child and she shared their life
story as well as her love life. That day was very fun because we have already established a
good communication with the family because we were already able to ask questions
regarding economic status as well as their educational background. We were also able to
gather some information about their health as well as their daily expenses. On that
particular day, we were able to understand the situation of the family and we tried to think of
a way or a solution for us to be able to help them. That day ended well and we were looking
forward for the next meeting because of our experience with the family.
$ay + %Se&tember )-( )*1+,
This day, we were not able to meet the mother again, but the eldest child was there
to entertain us and give us more information about the family. On that particular day, we
talked about the family's health history. The funny thing about this day is that the discussion
attracted their neighbors and we started a little discussion outside their house and everyone
was participating in the discussion. As we go along, l noticed that this people are not really
relying on the help of the barangay council nor the government because for them, those
people in the government can't do anything for them. For me, this is a problem because
they don't see the people on the government as their hope instead; they think that those
people are the ones who are making them poorer. As for these people on the community,
they just rely on the help of each other for them to survive. Their plan is just to survive one
day at a time and do the same thing all over and over again. lt seems that there is no hope
the way they say their opinions and stories.
$ay ' %October .( )*1+,
This day is the final day of our immersion in the community. We made sure that we
are going to give something for our adaptive family as our token of saying thank you for
entertaining us and giving us the information for our case study. That day, we haven't still
met the mother. We didn't able to gather more data about the family background because
the eldest child doesn't know some of the family information.
Being exposed in the community is a heartwarming experience. You will see how
people live in such society. As we go on our exposure, we realized that we are so blessed,
that we're more fortunate to other people. From that day onwards, we always tell ourselves
to appreciate all the blessings that God is giving us. As a student, we can't change their
situation in just a blink of an eye, that's impossible. But we know that we can do something.
We can help them by through teaching them how to take care of themselves so that they
will stay healthy as possible.
lt really feels good when you help your neighbors. With the knowledge that we have,
we are able to share about we know on health and things that must be avoided. They
welcome us warmly every time we go to their house. Our main goal is to help improve their
living. Money is not a solution for every problem. We just have to let them see that living in a
simple life is better, like what Mother Theresa said, "Live simply, so that may others may live
simply too".
III. Intervie/ !otes
Since the mother is not around during the home visits, Renses was the one who we
had interviewed for the information that we need for our Case Study.
Student: "Hello, AUF students kami, andito kami para sa CWTS namin. Okay lang ba kung
interviewhin naming kayo?"
Renses: "Okay lang po ate, dati din po may nagpunta dito sa amin, sa AUF din po sila nag-
Student: "Ganun ba? Buti naman, siguro alam mo na kung ano ang pakay namin."
Renses: "Opo ate, tinutulungan po kami ng mga students, at tinuturuan din po kami mag
Student: "Oo tama ka dun. Mukhang kayo lang ang andito sa bahay. Asan pala si mama
Renses: "Wala siya ate eh, nag trabaho sa kabilang barangay, naglalaba po siya doon."
Student: "Ahh, edi kayo lang naiiwan dito? San si papa niyo?"
Renses: "Opo, di ko po alam eh. Dati pa po siya wala simula nung bata kami di ko na
matandaan bakit siya umalis."
Student: "Ahh ganun ba, ilan years na kayo nakatira dito?"
Renses: "l0 years na po yata ate."
Student: "Anong ginagawa nyo pag wala si mama nyo?"
Renses: "Ako po yung nag lilinis at nag lalaba. Tapos po inaalagaan ko po mga kapatid ko,
kasi po yun po ang payo ni mama sakin. Tsaka po tinuturuan ko po mag basa si bunso at
magsulat, para pag po tuturuan sya ni mama alam nya na po ang iba. Yun kanta kanta kami
ng mga kapatid ko ate, tska mahilig ako mag sulat ng mga tula."
I0. Findins
During our house visits to our adopted family, we have found that although they
have little, they are more appreciative that they have a family to spend their time with.
The family has stated that before moving to Sapalibutad, their quality of life was much
better when living at the Pavilion. They are still able to manage, but it's a little harder for
them ÷ especially since Sapalibutad is an isolated area.
0. 1oral 2valuation
During our house visits, we learned about how we should appreciate the people
and the things that are already present in our lives. Our adopted family in Sapalibutad is
satisfied enough with the way they live and with the little they have. When you look at
individuals who have much more, they tend to want more because they believe that
they will be satisfied with such material things. We also learned to be more humble
when talking since if one says something the wrong way, another person may become
offended. We also learned how to maintain the integrity of our adopted family by
supporting what they do, helping them when they need it, encouraging improvements,
and providing teachings, all without degrading them or thinking of them lower than us.
0I. Recommendation
We would like to recommend this report to:
¯ Government officials, so that they are more aware of the people residing in
these kinds of areas and are able to provide adequate care and services for
¯ Community members of Sapalibutad, so that they can come up with more ways
in order to provide for themselves more sufficiently;
¯ and to the general public, including students, so that they can also help in
providing aid to those who need it, as well as appreciating what they already
