走近石门坎——石门文集

纪念费立波

斯嘉 2008.12


 Pniuo Bennoun,本诺.费立波,著名国际NGO凯尔国际项目首任中国代表。

1985年凯尔国际进入中国。与国家级特困县贵州省威宁县合作在雪山灼圃等地开展高山草场,草地绵羊等扶贫发展项目。

1989年凯尔国际撤出中国。

经费立波等的积极努力,香港乐施会进入中国,接替凯尔在贵州威宁云南禄劝和澜沧县的农村扶贫综合发展项目。费立波任首任驻华代表。

1992年起乐施会在威宁县开展养猪贷款,地膜玉米,洋芋套种,以物放贷,小额信贷等综合项目,主要项目点之一就是威宁石门坎。

费立波常年奔波这些极贫地区村寨,与当地农户们同吃同住同生活,建立了极深厚的感情。

但终因过度劳累兼环境恶劣生活艰苦,1994年7月15日在其家乡澳大利亚墨尔本逝于脑瘤。享年40岁。

费立波遗愿将其骨灰分成四份,永远留在他热爱的家乡墨尔本,和他鞠躬尽瘁做扶贫发展的第二故乡—中国石门坎,禄劝,澜沧。

1996年,费立波的哥哥遵其遗愿专程将一份骨灰送到中国石门坎。

当时石门坎政治环境极其恶劣。费立波骨灰放入土中,就埋在山上现在坟的位置,但无坟。工作人员作了记号。外人看上去与平地无异。

之后乐施会驻石门坎项目办多次打报告申请为费立波建坟立碑。报告打到国安局,不同意,因为“死了还占我们的土地”。

2001年,石门坎政治环境稍有放松后,当地人员发起农户集资为费立波建坟,并以石门坎项目农户名义立碑。各寨有代表参加。其情感人!

墓碑全文如下:

国际主义者

本诺.费立波Pniuo Bennoun之墓

(1954.10.27-1994.7.15) 

费立波先生,1988—1994年在中国贵州省威宁县,云南省禄劝县和澜沧县从事农村综合发展工作,为极贫农户自我发展工作呕心沥血鞠躬尽瘁,1994年7月15日,因病医治无效,在澳大利亚墨尔本逝世。据立波生前遗愿,将其骨灰葬在石门乡。

坟的位置在乐施会原石门坎项目办后面的小山上。站在坟前,右边是往苏科寨的路,左边是石门通外界的路,前面是石门两条"主道"的接点,一条石门坎赶场的泥路主街,现在已铺成水泥路了;另一条路是通往石门坎学校,牧师楼和乡政府。

从山底到小山上费立波先生的坟前一共修了四十级台阶。坟虽然极其简陋,但是石门坎人民用这样的方式永远纪念费立波先生短暂而伟大四十岁的生命!

每次在石门坎,寨子里老百姓回忆起费立波在石门坎的日子,都会流泪哽噎说不下去.......

这些年,石门坎社区一直努力设法将费立波现在的信息传递给费立波先生的家乡亲友,而未果。熟悉费立波或了解费立波故事的外国友人都已相继离开中国。

费立波和他的故事,静静地在乌蒙腹地沉默。

然而,石门坎人民用这四十级台阶告诉世界:

生命的价值,不在于他生存的长度,而在于他生命的意义。
 

我们将永远纪念费立波短暂而伟大四十年的生命!
