Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC)

Chummy Chum once again visited the Outpatient Department of Pediatrics and the Animal Bite Section of the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center. It was a surprise visit for the children having medical check-ups.

Upon the team’s arrival, they were assisted by a nurse to secure and ensure that the charity event would be properly set up at the OPD.

While the Chummy Chum team was preparing for the event, doctors who were present at the time inquired on how they can invite Chummy Chum to other charity events for the unwell children, which was explained well to them by the team.

Finally, the popcorn was ready to serve, and the team called the children who were in the queue. The children were excited to see Chummy Chum (the mascot) up close and personal. Everyone received goodies, special gifts, and a pack of hypo-allergenic facemasks which are perfect for children with medical conditions.

The team could not resist taking some photos of the children who were smiling despite the uncomfortable conditions brought on by their sickness. Some of the children were playing with the Chummy Chum doll, some were excited about working on the coloring books, and some were just simply enjoying munching the freshly cooked popcorn. Along with the yummy treats are fresh-baked choco banana muffins and packs of fruit juice. The team also shared some toys with the children.

Special thanks to Clearlogic Inc. for the hypo-allergenic facemasks, and to the Nursing students of the National University for giving a hand.

(The OMMC building is new and well-built. We learned that the Out-Patient Department (OPD) building in next in line for renovation.)
