Precious Moment With The Kids of Hope

"Hugs can do great amounts of good, especially for children." - Princess Diana

Hug them - the first thing i did when i finally met the kids of hope.

Kids of Hope are children from House of Hope who are suffering from leukemia. There are about 30 children who undergo chemo therapy at Southern Philippines Medical Center through the initiative of Davao Children's Cancer Fund Inc. 

Last month, my fellow blogger and advocate Jojie Alcantara, invited me to an art workshop for the kids of hope. We taught them how to draw and express their feelings. Spending time with these children was really an amazing experience. 

At first, i felt like im crying because i also have a 5 yr old cousin who has leukemia. Seeing them with bald head was heart breaking because you know that they are suffering from this kind of sickness. But during the workshop, they made me smile effortlessly. It was like a precious moment that i dont want to miss any second.

Thanks to Ate Jojie for inviting me to be part of this memorable experience. To the kids of hope, this will not be the last time you'll be seeing me. I will definitely come back and spend more time with you.
