“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” – Mathama Gandhi.
It has been two (2) years since we last visited Ospital ng Maynila for a Charity Event. It was fair weather on the morning of April 27, 2022. The children at the OPD got so excited to see the Chummy Chum mobile van coming through the gate of the hospital. They know what’s gonna happen next.
The Chummy Chum team disembarked the van carrying all the treats that they prepared with the help of some volunteers. One by one, equipment, boxes of food, and gifts, along with Chummy Chum himself started to set up.
The team distributed stubs for unwell children who are lined up for their medical check-ups at the OPD ward. The team has to make sure that everyone will get their share. The time has come and the team called the children’s attention. Each child received food packs along with Chummy Chum popcorn and personalized freebies such as coloring books with crayons, wrist bands, and mini stuff toys.
Finally, Chummy Chum (mascot) joined the well-disciplined activity event. The children got more excited and happy to meet Chummy Chum once again. Some of the children requested to pose for a photo with Chummy, as they have missed him so much.
Overall, the Charity Event was a success. Brief but definitely brought so much joy and hope to the sick children.
Thank you to all volunteers and a partner-donor “Anonymous R” and Ms. Rona.
