Mrs. Cabardo and the Gift Giving at a Tenement Housing in Santa Ana. Manila





Mrs. Cabardo is one of Chummy Chum’s friends who do and support charity activities, for children in particular. On April 17th 2011, she invited us to a tenement housing complex in Santa Ana, Manila to give the children of the community there an exciting Sunday afternoon. In a third world country like the Philippines, housing is scarce and people displaced and challenged to find a place to stay, much more to live in, is commonplace. Here, many families live in low-cost housing offered by the government and among these families are children. 200 of them were present in our activities then, and all were more than willing to participate in games like ‘The Boat is Sinking’, ‘Pass the Object’, and a lot more we got in store for them. After the games they were all expectant to get the freebies and the refreshments we had for them and the events were capped off with our gentle giant Chummy Chum dancing to the latest beats. We can definitely say that whatever the circumstances, children will always find a piece of heaven on earth in games as simple as hopscotch or tag as long as they got each other enjoying each one's company. We can learn a lot from the innocence and the optimism of children and that’s the very reason we should all protect and support them
Our thanks go to the chair of baranggay Sta. Ana and its constituents. =)
