Chummy Chum with Ms. Elyn for Birthday Treat to Poor Cancer Kids of Bahay Aruga & PGH

Every June, Ms. Elyn and friends organizes a gift-giving activity for poor children as their way of sharing their blessing to the less fortunate. As early as May, Ms. Elyn goes to her friends and encourage them to volunteer and spend time with poor kids during her yearly outreach activity. Some of them donate cash and some donate goods, others are with her during the event day to lend their valuable time to help Ms, Elyn on her mission for poor kid patients in PGH.
When Ms. Elyn learned that the cancer kid patient have already been segregated by PGH, she changed her plan. A mass was held at Bahay Aruga at 7:00am after which they distributed rice, biscuits, toiletries toys, lootbags, etc until 10:00am.  

At 10am-12nn, the group transferred to PGH to distribute gifts to kid patients at Wards 9, 11, 6, 7 & 10. Ms. Elyn gave away lots of freebies such as toys, food, toiletries and other hospital needs that will be useful to the patients. Everytime Ms. Elyn celebrates her birthday with the poor, she is able to make almost 300 patients happy.

Chummy Chum’s Child Survival Maintenance Program (CSMP)

Child Survival Maintenance Program (CSMP) is a division of Chummy Chum Foundation wherein we donate incubators to Public Hospitals. 
This started in 2010 when most of CCF Boss’ friends donated cash and the only thing that our boss thought of was to purchase several incubators and donate them to government hospitals in service of poor mothers who cannot afford it. 
CCF were able to donate one incubator each to public hospitals in Manila and Quezon City such as PGH, Justice Gen. Hospital, Ospital ng Tondo, Gat Andres Bonifacio Hospital, Las Pinas Satellite Trauma Hospital, Quezon City General Hospital, V. Luna General Hospital, and Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Tala, Quezon City. 
This year, we are set to donate 22 units in provincial hospital such as Batangas Medical Center, Santa Rosa Community Hospital, Tagaytay Hospital, and also Jose Reyes Medical Center, Ospital ng Paranaque, Pasay City General Hospital, San Lorenzo Ruiz Women’s Hospital, Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center and Sta. Ana Hospital. Other requests are still being checked if they are indeed eligible. We also provide photo therapy light replacement as part of the lifetime service warranty of said incubators.

Chummy Chum joins Ms. Mayette as She Treat Kids at Bahay Aruga

From St. Benilde, we headed straight to Malate, Manila in the evening to grace the last minute invitation of Ms. Mayette, founder of Bahay Aruga. 
She wanted to treat the Kids with Cancer that temporarily resides at Bahay Aruga. These children are terminally ill and only have moments to live, so who are we to say to her request? 
When we got there, the food and gifts were already prepared, which were solicited from generous people. 
I remember Childhaus which Mother Ricky Reyes handles… Ms. Mayette also has a beauty salon but it’s not as big as that of Mother Ricky. Childhaus has many donors because its founder knows a lot of well-off people. 
With Ms. Mayette, she is just starting and she admits that she is praying for the needs of these sick children such as medicines & transport money for medical checkups. If the patients don’t have food, Ms. Mayette provides for them so they will not get hungry. She also admits that she also needs help with the utility bills of Bahay Aruga for the sake of the poor cancer patients.
We sincerely hope that the kinds readers will help the poor cancer patients in Bahay Aruga.
