Chummy Chum Graces Mr Rex's Birthday Charity Celebration for Childhope Foundation Street Kids

After the morning event, CCF attended Mr Rex’s 30th Birthday Celebration w/ Street Children of Childhope Foundation. The event was held at his new condo, at Bay Suite – Admiral Hotel in Roxas Boulevard, Manila. 
Mr. Rex has been doing charity activities with us for five (5) years now as he shares his blessing with less fortunate children. This time we invited street children from Childhope Foundation and brought them to this posh venue. 
The event was a successful one, although we noticed that the catering personnel were cold and distant in attending to the kids, just because they were grimy. Maybe the staff were not properly informed that these kids are part of the event. 
There were a lot of leftover foods that could have been given to the kids to take home for their siblings, but the catering staff just threw them away. The host, Mr. Rex was not aware of what happened. 
Despite of it, the children were very happy and thankful because they were invited to an elegant place and for the gifts they received from Mr. Rex and CCF. 
Big thanks to Kuya Al for volunteering.

Chummy Chum Joins SM Foundation’s Medical Mission at Brgy. Batis

CCF Team headed to Barangay Batis in San Juan, Metro Manila to participate in the medical mission organized by SM Foundation. 
Barangay Batis is a community composed of poor families that is why they are delighted whenever SMFI organizes a medical mission in their area. 
When we arrived, there are already several kids who were done with their checkup and are about to go home. But when they saw the popcorns, they all hurriedly went back to the venue and patiently waited. 
The medical mission was a success as they were able to hand out free reading glasses to the beneficiaries as well as free checkup such as CBC, X-Ray, ECG, etc.

Big thanks to Al for volunteering.

Chummy Chum w/ Ms. Sison for Annual Birthday Treat to NCH Cancer Kids

CCF Team went to National Children’s Hospital (NCH) at E. Rodriguez Quezon City for Mrs. Sison’s annual birthday charity activity for terminally ill children. 
We encounter different faces every month when we go to NCH, all of them are battling the Big C. 
Some of them recover and some are continuing the fight. That’s why doctors are trying their best to strengthen the kids’ immune system and avoid processed food which can cause cancer especially to pregnant mothers because there are cases of children being born with cancer cells. 
Today, Mrs. Sison is here to share her blessings to the cancer kid patients. We prepared loot bags filled with gifts as well as Jollibee meals courtesy of Mrs. Sison.
Thank you Ms. Gidget for helping us out.

Thank you to all our volunteers in sharing your time and effort, just like Ms. Gidget.

CCF Team headed to Dapitan St., in Sampaloc Manila to accommodate the request of Dr. Albert Elementary School to sponsor Day 1 of their week-long celebration of their 29th Foundation. 
Chummy Chum entertained several Gifted Talents (GTs) and SPED students of the school. CCF has catered to numerous schools, foundations and organizations, and we love to reach out to other groups so we can help and cheer up more underprivileged children. 
Chummy Chum has also partnered with various TV stations such as GMA’s Kapuso Cancer Champions, ABS-CBN’s Bantay Bata 163, TV5’s Alagang Kapatid & GMA’s I-wonder episode. Indeed, Chummy Chum has reached out to a lot of poor kids through these organizations and has spread joy and cheer to the less fortunate. Same thing on our activity today, students of DAES had a great time during the celebration. Big thanks to Sir Gary & Ms. Ruth for the toys as prizes for the games.

Chummy Chum Visits Erjun in Cavite

CCF Team went to Erjun’s house in Naic, Cavite for a personal visit. 
We met Erjun in PCMC and he is suffering from Portal Hypertension. He has a tumor in the intestine and he easily vomits blood when his somach gets painful. 
We brought him grocery items courtesy of CCF supporters. His family lives in a relocation site in Naic and we had to travel for 3hrs just to get there. We saw the sacrifices of Erjun’s mother. Despite their pitiful condition, she still manages to have his son be treated for his sickness, no matter how expensive, out of deep love for his son. Because of this we decided to help Erjun and asked our partner-organizations for donation to help augment the kid’s medical needs such as medicines worth P6,000 (courtesy of Bantay Bata). 
Their hospital bill went up to P30,000 and we advised them to ask help to PCSO so they managed to just pay P2,000. He is scheduled for a colonoscopy exam but it has been cancelled due to Erjun’s fever. 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the following generous individuals for also helping Erjun; Sir Bino & friends, Ms. Ruth, Ms. Jane, Ms. Anne, Ms. Khai and Ms. Rochel. Erjun’s medication still continues so we are still knocking to your generous hearts to help this kid.

Chummy Chum Graces Project Outreach Feeding Program in Tondo

CCF Team headed to Tondo Manila for Project Outreach’s Feeding Program. 
When we got there, we started setting up as kid-beneficiaries are coming in. They were watching us set up with excitement in their eyes as we cook the popcorn. 
The volunteers of Outreach.Ph started the program with games as food starts arriving including four (4) big cakes donated by a group. 
The group seldom hold outreach because of they depend on the time availability of their volunteers. This event was supposed to be on August 28 (Sunday) but because CCF do not schedule outreach activities on Sundays, we held it on the 27th of August. CCF don’t normally schedule on Sundays except for Cancer Patients and Orphanages.

Chummy Chum with Javier Family & Friends’ Charity Birthday Treat at Meritxell Home for Children

CCF accompanied Mrs. Javier with her family and friends to Meritxell Home for Children as they share their blessings to the poor orphans. 
We got to know Mrs. Javier through her online inquiry. She sent us a request and we immediately made a follow up call. Her secretary got in touch with us to confirm their request and we searched for an orphanage that’s near their place and arrange everything prior to the event. 
On that day, CCF met the donor and her family and friends as they arrive at Meritxell aboard a bus. 
We thought that it must be expensive hiring a bus to accommodate her friends and it would probably range from P10,000. We learned later that the Javier Family owned the bus. 
They had the food catered to the delight of everyone and the party went on smoothly and the orphaned kids, along with Mrs. Javier and company, enjoyed the party.

We intend not to disclose the identity of the children for their protection.

CCF headed to SM Bicutan, the venue of SMF Medical-Dental Mission. 
It was a rainy and cold day and the outcome of people that went there to avail of the free medical services, were not that many. Most of them were elderly people, since some have work or school given that it was a weekday. 
Most kids who availed of the free checkup are really poor. 
After the checkup, a family that has 4 children get to receive lots of free medicines that they couldn’t even carry courtesy of SM, and Chummy Chum freebies.

Thank you Ms. Ruth for the additional refreshments and to Sir Gary for the toys.
