Friendship Home Father Luis Amigó, Inc
The Chummy Chum Foundation Philippines Inc. and the WeCarePh went to visit the children of the Friendship Home Father Luis Amigos in San Andres Bukid, Manila.
Friendship Home Amigos is a DSWD-accredited organization, a shelter for the youth who lost their path, giving them a home to live in. They also serve poor communities by doing some outreach programs.
On this day, the Chummy Chum and WeCarePh team made 100 children happy. The kids were so excited when they saw Chummy Chum (the mascot) for the first time. They were a new group of children since the Chummy Chum team visited the shelter in 2013 and 2015.
The event started with some games; awesome prizes were given to the winners. Chummy Chum (the mascot) joined the children afterward, performed a dance number, and got to play with them while the Chummy Chum team started to distribute popcorn, cotton candy, and yummy snacks.
As Chummy Chum gave each child a coloring book, chummy doll, and wristbands, the WeCarePH team also prepared some wonderful gifts for the children. At the end of the event, some of the children grabbed the display balloon to take home with them.
The event was brief but definitely one of the most memorable for the children. They were grateful and feeling blessed that day.
Special thanks to The SM Store for the toys, and to Clearlogic Inc., for letting the team use their company van.
