On December 13, 2018 the employee volunteer group of GMA (GMA G.I.V.E.S.), celebrated the season with our Batang Kapwa (BK) members for the second time. This volunteer group guides, interacts, volunteers, educates, and serves (G.I.V.E.S.) their target beneficiary of choice.
These children suffering from Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) played games with actor Migo Adecer. After singing a song, Adecer expressed how he was looking forward to seeing them all again. Reality Talent of Bet ng Bayan, Hannah Precilla, also serenaded them with a fun Christmas song. A few of the children spontaneously joined the fun and stood up to dance with her.
Orlando S. Mercado, President of the Kapwa Ko Mahal Ko Foundation, iterated that aside from the medical treatments, getting together to exchange stories, experiences and advises is also important. He also emphasized that for the children, this experience is what is called "Character Building".
Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Communication of GMA, Angel Javier-Cruz, joined the celebration with other volunteer employees as they watched an episode of the tv drama fantasy series Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko [lit. My Grandmother is Better than You]. The celebration was filled with food, games and prices. This afternoon was capped with the interaction of the children with Santa Claus.
