Chummy Chum Graces Blessedville Nutrition Month

CCF went to Alfonso, Cavite for the Nutrition Month celebration of Blessedville. This is the 4th year that CCF is supporting Blessedville in their various SPED events. We even bring in donors/sponsors that are willing to share their blessing either in kind or in cash. The said center is being blessed by helping poor children with special needs. Some parents pay them fruits since they don’t have money and Blessedville is ok with that. This July they are celebrating Nutrition Month. The program pushed through despite the rain. They just set up a tent for their visitors. Big thanks to Ms. Kathrina Victoria for the lootbags.

Chummy Chum at SM Foundation Medical Mission at Marilao, Bulacan

We left the office really early to go to SM Marilao for another tie-up with SM Foundation Medical Mission. Even if we do this for free, we try our best to be professional by arriving early at the venue. We prefer to be ahead of everyone so we could prepare our booth so that when the kids arrive, the first thing that they will see is the colorful Chummy Chum booth and their eyes will light up in excitement. With the numerous medical missions that we have been to, we notice that the children are not excited with the free medicines, only their parents are. It is quite understandable that they don’t appreciate the medicines much since they are just kids and they are not aware how important these medicines are to them. They are most excited to see Chummy Chum and receive CCF freebies.

Chummy Chum Visits SPED Students of Bay Central Elementary School

CCF headed to Bay Central Elementary School located near the Calamba Exit of SLEX. When we got there, the school principal offered us breakfast as they recognize CCF’s effort to go their despite the distance and make their SPED students happy. Due to typhoon Glenda which hit the province, they just got back their electricity that day and because of that, only half of the SPED students came to school. We suggested to also include poorest students from Grade 1 and include them in our event. The children were all delighted to see Chummy Chum. The school principal also offered us lunch which made us grateful because not all SPED schools that we’ve been to have offered such. Of course we don’t expect anything in return because what we do is from the heart, but these simple gestures makes us also feel special and also help build a good partnership between us. Big t hanks to Ms. Kathrina Victoria for the lootbags.

Chummy Chum Visits PCMC-OPD

CCF headed to Agham Road in Quezon City for another public hospital visitation this time at Philippine Children Medical Center (PCMC) Out-Patient Department to bring joy to children who are having their checkup. We provided refreshments to the kids who are waiting in line for their checkup, courtesy of Ms. Ruth Salasiban. Some of the children don’t have “baon” so they were very delighted when they were given free snacks by Chummy Chum. PCMC is a government hospital that caters to poor children with more serious condition. This is the reason why we keep on supporting the poor kids that are coming to PCMC.

Chummy Chum Visits the Special Children of Biñan Elementary School

After two (2) re-scheduling of the event because of the recent typhoon Glenda, that toppled electrical posts and resulted to a week-long brownout to the area, the event finally pushed through and we went to Biñan Elementary School to visit 200 SPED students. Only half of the SPED students came to school that day probably because they are still recovering from the typhoon. The new SPED building is beautiful and big. The school management purposely built a separate building for said children to prevent regular students from bullying them. We also salute the parents of these special children because of their love and dedication and in providing a normal life for them. It is delightful to see each of these children excitedly hugging Chummy Chum and taking a picture with him. Big thanks to Mam Esther Maleo and Ms. Ruth Salasiban for the lootbags.

Chummy Chum Graces DSWD-Makati’s PWD Week

This is the 4th year that CCF has sponsored DSWD-Makati’s PWD celebration and we can say that we are always successful in giving joy to special children. We may have encountered several setbacks with them in the past 2 years such as miscommunication as to the context of our sponsorship (some thought we would provide lunch for 500 kids and a mother of a special kid even got angry at us because her kid was already hungry), and may have rethink if we will still grant the organizer’s request, we just think about the big smiles of these special children and how much happiness they feel when they see us. For this year, the event was still not organized but nevertheless, what’s important is that the kids had a great time.

Chummy Chum Joins SM Foundation Medical Mission in Malabon

CCF joined SM Foundation for another Medical Mission, this time at Savemore-Malabon, to cater to the poorest of the poor of the said city. We have been to different SMF missions and have made numerous children happy so we knew that when they told us that the venue will be Savemore, the place will be small and compact. Nevertheless we went on with it because of our big desire to help. And of all the booths set up on the venue, most people especially children came flocking to ours. They were intrigued why we do this for free. Savemore-Malabon’s Operation’s Manager, Dra. Rorie, was the one who explained to them about it.

Chummy Chum Visits Kinder Philippines School for the Deaf

CCF went to Kinder Philippines School for the Deaf located at Pasay City. Way back during college, we always pass by the said school and along, we thought it was a private school. But then we saw that majority of the children studying here belong to the poor community. This include those children who are not only deaf, but also considered “special children”. 
It was delightful to see that even as we were just setting up the booth, the kids were already very excited. The teachers conducted parlor games for the children. Despite their condition, they were all just enjoying the party like normal children. When Chummy Chum came out and danced with the kids, they all went to hug the adorable mascot to the point that he can’t dance anymore. 
They are very grateful to Ms. Ruth for sharing her blessings to them, even though she is not physically present because she lives abroad. They are also thankful to CCF for exerting effort to reach out to SPED centers in and around Metro Manila just to spread happiness.

Chummy Chum Joins Msrenugidoomal’s Feeding Program

CCF’s next stop is at the feeding program held at Taguig City, courtesy of Msrenu. The place is packed with people, with small houses much similar to those in shacks. But these people live there not because they have no place to live, but because they chose to do so. We can’t say that they are dirt poor because each of those small houses have air-conditioning. 
But then some of those who are living there are really poor that’s why they are the chosen beneficiaries of Msrenu. It was raining when we arrived at the place and there were no preparations by the organizers. But we managed to make something out of it by using our own Chummy Chum Van to set up the booth. When Ms. Renu and friends arrived the party commenced. There was only a little dancing with Chummy Chum and food distribution but the toys and freebies were not given out as the children became rowdy and disorganized.

Chummy Chum with SMF Mission with poor families of Barangay BF

CCF and SM Foundation conducted yet another medical mission, this time for the poor community surrounding Barangay BF and Barangay Seacom, Sampaloc, etc. Every SM Supermall branches has a mission to share their blessings to the less fortunate by way of medical mission and CCF is their partner in spreading joy and cheer to children who will also be participating on the said medical mission. We observed that the kids, being kids, are not that happy / excited to receive free medicine. They were more excited to receive freebies from CCF. But the parents are very grateful for the free medicines that SMF is giving them. Big thanks to Ms. Ruth for the additional lootbags.

Chummy Chum visits Mabuhay Deseret Foundation

CCF headed to Mabuhay Deseret Foundation located at 14th Ave., Quezon City to celebrate Ms Arlene and friends’ birthday with children with cleft palate and cataract. 
Mabuhay Deseret Foundation is a Non-Government Organization that helps the less fortunate people, especially kids, who have cleft palate condition as well as cataract. They, along with some Doctors to the Barriors conduct medical missions in different parts of the Philippines especially to the poorest communities to offer free medical service to them. There they met elderly and children with said conditions and they invite them to temporarily stay at Mabuhay Deseret for free while they are being treated medically. The foundation has been able to conduct operations thru the help of donors and friends of its founder, Sir Jack. He is an american national but is very humble that they make do of what they have. 
This is the first time that CCF went to their place as we brought along our donor for them to share their blessings to the kids. The children and elderly present there were very happy partake of chickenjoy as well as receive lootbags and toys prepared by Ms Arlene’s group. CCF provided popcorns, cotton candies, coloring materials, balloons and mascot entertainment. The kids as well as the lolas danced along with Chummy Chum which is very delightful to see. To those who would like to help Mabuhay Deseret and give donation, kindly search them at the web to look for their contact number and look for Dra. Terry.

Chummy Chum Joins SM Foundation Medical Mission at Looc Community

CCF went to Brgy Looc, Nasugbu Batangas for another joint project with SM Foundation. The place is near Pico De Loro that is owned and managed by SM Corporation. This is the second time to come here, and we still marvel at the beauty of the place. SM helped improved Barangay Looc by rebuilding the school and health center because the area is not being prioritized by the government that’s why SMF made such effort to improve said facilities as requested by the people in the community. 
When we arrived at the venue, the children were all very excited. We immediately set up our booth as the medical mission is ongoing. We have already given half of the children present with freebies but many are still asking for more, and there were still those who are having their checkups. We patiently explained to them that only those who were registered for the medical service will be given Chummy Chum freebies.
