Default GFCI (groud fault cicuit interupter)

Hello Everybody.
I brought a gfci from France to the Philippines. The french electrical
system is: one phase 220V 50Hz, three wires. (phase, neutral, ground)
The Philippino system is: two phases 110V (220V between both) 60Hz.two
wires only. Can I use my gfci? How? Having a step up transformer on
one phase and the ground? An isolation transformer?
Many thanks in advance for all advices and sugestions. Rudy in the
Philippines.
