Childhaus is a temporary shelter for indigent patients from the different provinces who have cancer or other dreaded diseases and have no place to stay in Metro Manila while undergoing medical evaluation or treatment.It provides free room and board to its residents.

Childhaus is run along the principles of hospice care and promotes the concept of holistic care healing through its various programs, services and activities. Our team got an opportunity to have an event for the first time in their new facility in V. Luna area in Quezon City.

Our sponsor for this event is Kuya Gerardo Gutierrez. He wanted to reach out to kids with cancer because of his parents. His father was a an advocate of helping kids before he went to the heavens. His mother on the other hand, is a cancer survivor. Her mother and his family were all present during the event last January 26, 2013.

We had a simple program and an intimate one with 15 kids. The parents of the kids were also there to join us. We had a magic show to start. Though the audience were from babies to adults, magic brought about amazement and happiness to all. We followed this with a string of games after.

Thanks to the contribution of volunteer Ate Rheena and another sponsor, Ate Jane, we had an excitement range of games from kids to their parents. The first one was guess how many cookies were in the plastic container. A kid guessed it right at 36!

The second game was called body to body. We got pairs of kids and volunteers to try this out. The instructions got tougher as they had to place a part of their body parts together to their partners one after the other. We had reverse pinoy henyo after and split the crowd into 2. They got so competitive as we raised to 3.

After eating, we had 2 more games. First was a game for the parents. The game was common but it elicited so much fun- the boat is sinking. Next was longest breath for the kids. It was another usual game in parties but it was a hit as well. They are usual games for a reason.

Thank you to the team of Childhaus for welcoming us. To our sponsors and volunteers as well who made is another event to remember. :)
