Chummy Chum warmed the children of Sta. Rita Orphanage with hot macaroni soup on a cold-weather day.
Sta. Rita Orphanage, Sucat, Paranaque City
Chummy Chum weathered the worst storm in May during the collaboration with a partner-donor in bringing a warm macaroni soup to the children of Sta. Rita Orphanage, in Paranaque City.
Our sincere gratitude to Ms. Marianne from Imus, Cavite who eagerly sent fresh vegetables and meat all the way from Baguio City, along with all the ingredients to cook a 20-kg Chicken Macaroni Soup for the children, administration staff, and careworkers of Sta. Rita Orphanage. The struggles of bringing all the stuff were real, as it was amidst the implementation of strict travel restrictions due to the Covid19 pandemic, not to mention the heavy rainfall on that day. This was just another proof that no deadly virus or worst storm can stop a loving heart.
All the children and administrators of the orphanage were very happy and thankful for the love and effort that Chummy Chum Foundation and Ms. Marianne had brought them.
Saint Rita Orphanage, originally known as Home of Children, is a non-stock non-profit religious institution that has been an apostolate of the Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect Sisters. It was founded by the late Mother Carmen Alba, A.R., who then riding through Quiapo and Sta. Cruz, Manila, saw small boys pestering vehicle riders, especially those in cars, asking for alms. Thereafter, putting up an orphanage became Mother Carmen’s obsession so that children of their ilk would have the proper guidance and sufficient preparation for a better future in life
