Not all celebrations are dates that happen every year. For Ate Kathy Villar, it was just because she wanted to give back for all the blessings she recently had and enjoyed. Truly happiness is meant to be shared with others. Last November 11 in the blistering hot sunny afternoon, we went around some rooms in Philippine Children’s Medical Center for Story Telling sessions with young patients.
This hospital was one of the first we partnered with way back in 2007. We’re glad we have been going back more often now when they re agreed to have weekend events again. Thanks to coordinator, Ate Beth Jayobo for making it possible for us.
We had two separate story telling activities. First was in the children’s ward and next at the Cancer and Hematology center. Along with 20 volunteers and some core team members, we would welcome them, invite Ate Dyaly Justo to share a powerful story and then equip Kuyas and Ates story books so they can do personal story telling. We also request prayers for healing.
It was a simple encounter yet powerful. Sometimes when we are blessed with other people we just met, it creates so much hope in us. We invite you, our reader to take part in what we do as well for children.
