At Kanlungan sa Erma Community with Mrs. Cabardo

September 30th, 2011. It was a Friday morning and the Chummy Chum team with Mrs. Cabardo headed to the community in Smokey Mountain in Tondo to feed almost a hundred kids in the impoverished area. Tropical storm Pedring hit the country just recently, and left many people needing a lot of assistance and food. Manila was badly affected, with the destitute communities experiencing the difficulty of getting by after the calamity. The children in this community braved the wet and misery of the typhoon’s aftermath, but we know in these times of disaster that help is most needed, and we were just in time to reach out to those little souls who waited for us. We shared with them the food we and Ms. Cabardo prepared, and for a day, the children somehow forgot about the poor conditions they were in.
Their smiles really were enough to give us strength and motivation to do our mission, and that is to reach out to the children and needy. =)

Thanks to all the volunteers from Konkokyo School.

Ms Sison's Birthday with children cancer patients at V.Luna General Hospital

September 24, 2011. It was a Saturday afternoon, and instead of being somewhere else for her birthday, our beloved Ms Sison was with us on her very special day. The Chummy Chum team and her family had been preparing for this occasion as she planned to celebrate the D-day with kids with cancer at the V. Luna General Hospital. Almost 40 kids greeted us and the birthday celebrator, and they got very excited even at our arrival with food, cakes, balloons, gifts, and banners – a full children’s party indeed. Clowns from Bernie’s Clowns were there to boot, to make the day festive and lively, and they enthused the kids to join the games. Happiness was clearly on Ms Sison’s face all afternoon as she saw the happy faces of the kids, and knowing that this celebration of another page in her life was very meaningful and blessed. After calling it a day, we said our goodbyes and it melted our hearts to hear some kids saying they’d be sleeping with smiles on their faces. =)
Thank you very much Ms Sison, and we wish you a great year for this new chapter in your life!
Thanks to Mr Tito and team for volunteering. =D

Elsie Gatches Village Family Day, with Ms Ruth for added refreshment

Sept.23, 2011, Friday morning. Chummy Chum was invited to the Elsie Gatches village in Zapote, Alabang, Muntinlupa. Almost 600 mentally-challenged kids and adults enjoyed the Family Day with Chummy Chum and the EGV staff, sharing good times, laughter, smiles, food and gifts. Unfortunately, most of them there were nopt being cared for and neglected by their families, perhaps because of financial constraints and lack of knowledge about the conditions of their afflicted loved ones. The EGC staff was such an angel to these kids and adults alike, not wanting them to feel alone and lonely by inviting sponsors and groups to share a day with them from time to time. As what has always been Chummy Chum’s mission, we of course do not pass up the opportunities to share the blessings with kids, especially those kids who sadly are marginalized in our society. And as always, the kids’ laughter and smiles are ultimately the best reward we can ever get.

We would like to say to Ms Ruth our sincerest and most appreciative ‘thank you!’ for tirelessly believing in us and our mission. Thanks!

Chummy chum at Ospital ng Maynila-OPD Ms Ruth for added refreshment

On September 21, 2011, The team paid a visit to the Ospital in Maynila in Roxas Boulevard, Manila, to share the blessings with the children patients and their families. When we arrived, the kids and their parents were in line for check-up with the doctors, and we got worried that we may not have time to personally give them the gifts and the snacks we had prepared for them. The kids of course, curious and not wanting to miss out on what we brought for them asked their parents to make a beeline to our table while the kids themselves wait for their turn with the doctor! Talk about kids coming up with ingenious solutions to problems. =P It was again a great afternoon of gift-giving and sharing our blessings. Before we left, the kids asked us when we’d be back, and said that maybe they’d get sick on our next visit so they could again meet us! =D

Pasay City General Hospital with Ms Ruth for added Refreshment

September 16, 2011, Friday morning. Chummy Chum visited the Pasay City General Hospital Pediatrics ward, and again, our team was reminded how big a small act of charity can be. We met kids there suffering from sicknesses, most wanting to get well so they could go home. There was this little girl whose mother told us after we got close to her bed and gave her our small gifts that her daughter had been complaining about how the needle the joy she and the rest of the patients in the ward seemed to share with us and each other. Truly, these kids don’t in the IV brought her pain. After seeing us and Chummy Chum and the gifts, that girl started smiling and taking in need a lot—don’t ask a lot from us—just some time and some act of generosity is always appreciated by their little hearts and really goes a long, long way.
Thanks again to Ms Ruth for the refreshments and thanks too to all the volunteers from the PCGH social service department.

Philippine Christian Foundation Day with Architect Pacia for added refreshments

On September 13th, we were on the road early in the morning to head to the event organized by Philippine Christian Foundation (PCF). That day, they prepared snacks and activities for the 600 pupils in the Smokey Mountain community in Tondo, Manila. When our team arrived, the kids were busy with the games, each one intent on winning the prizes, not yet knowing that we had added more to the pile of prizes they were eyeing. While the kids were engrossed with the activities, we started to prepare the snacks, and we were delightfully surprised to see how challenging but at the same time rewarding it was to cook pop corn and cotton candies for 600 kids! When Chummy Chum, our dear mascot, went out to meet the kids, we wanted to just freeze that moment as the kids hugged him and hugged each other in such a poignant expression of happiness. We would like to thank Architect Pacia for the added refreshments for the kids, and also Mrs Cabardo and company, for helping us with the snacks and the preparations on that day. Thanks too Ms Daph,Ms Vicky and Ms Denisse for volunteering. =)

Rex celebrates His Birthday at Friendship Homes of Father Luis

Chummy Chum will always be grateful for the people who are tireless in showing and giving their support to our causes. We also feel honored that people believe that we can help them celebrate important events in their lives. Rex is among those who contacted us to give a hand in finding a group or organization to celebrate with, and we told him we can share his birthday party with the less-fortunate kids in Friendship Home Father’s House located in San Andres, Malate, Manila. He prepared scrumptious food, game prizes, and gifts for the kids, and this really made all the children so happy. He spend time chatting with the kids, and led the games for them, and of course no event would have ever been complete without Chummy Chum dancing with the kids, and here, Rex was such a sport, joining the kids in their dancing. We thank you Rex for sharing your birthday with us, and we hope to see you again soon! Thank you too for your generosity and help to our cause. =)

Chummy Chum @ PGH-OPD Section with Ms Ruth Salasiban’s Additional Refreshments

September 7, 2011. A Wednesday morning it was, and Chummy Chum and team was once again paying PGH a visit. The OPD of the hospital has carved a special part in our hearts and schedules, and every visit there reinforces our belief that kids, especially the underprivileged in the society, should always be given hope and a reason to believe in life albeit its hardships. It was heart-warming to know people appreciate what we do, and Ms Daph, our beloved volunteer from Bulacan was amazed with how unique our way of bringing joy and fun to these kids was. She had work that day, but decided to skip work to lend us a hand, and we hope in return for this little sacrifice, she was rewarded by the kids smiles and gestures of thankfulness. Our team is really glad that we get to know people who have big hearts- like Ms Daph, who is generous with her time, Ms Ruth, who never forgets to share what she has proving distance is no barrier in helping, and Ms Pelino who shares her blessings, who gave additional refreshments and balloons to the kids. We believe that as long as we are steadfast in promoting our mission of charity to the children, people will get inspired to help too, and realize that indeed, it’s so much better to give than to receive. Truly, there is not better way to live than to live with love and generosity. =)

Chummy Chum at Fathers House with Edwin Paul

Here in Chummy Chum, it’s not unusual to find people who are very generous with their time and resources—people who want to share their blessings, and people who want to share their special days with kids who are less fortunate. Mrs. Pelino’s son, Edwin Paul, chose to celebrate his birthday on September 4th with the Children of Father’s House, to make the day extra-special, since Edwin Paul himself is special. As a mother to Edwin Paul, she knows that kids need to be spent time with and appreciated to who they are, and she has high hopes that her son, through prayer and therapy, will be fine. Gifts, laughter, food, and smiles were shared that day, and the even at the start of the party preparations, the kids at the Father’s House could not conceal their delight. The good times were capped off with Chummy Chum dancing with the kids. It was a sight to see the kids having a really good time, just being kids, just being themselves – as they should be. Truly, whatever problems we face in this life, it should never be a hindrance to be happy and a blessing to other people. We thank Mrs. Pelino for the donation she made to Chummy Chum Foundation. Thank you very much.

Chummy Chum @Abs-Cbn Bantay bata 163 Medical Mission

It’s said that Christmas is the longest in the Philippines, and what better way to start the festive season by starting the month of September with the children in mind. On September 2, 2011, Friday, Chummy Chum and the gang went with the team of ABS-CBN Bantay Bata 163 to bring its medical mission to the underprivileged kids of Banca Banca Elementary School in Victoria, Laguna. Hundreds of kids prepared themselves for the program, and after seeing the doctors, they were given the freebies that we and Bantay Bata 163 have brought just for them. Truly, just like how the famous Christmas song goes, “kahit hindi Pasko ay magbigayan” (give even when it’s not Christmas) is a virtue we must all practice.
