“Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead - Mother Teresa, A Simple Path: Mother Teresa
Dra. Mae gratefully receiving the donation
from Bobong Cutiongco
Documenting their tour of Southern Phils. Medical Center (SPMC) & turnover of the donation from GRoUP, Espesyal Pinoy, and Triskelion Singapore to the Kids of Hope in the SPMC was an amazing experience for me.
What moved me were 1st: the stories of Dra. Mae Dolando on the fortunate current condition of the cancer patients from the hospital’s private supporters compared to years before. 2nd: on how slowly but surely her dream of improving the lives of the children and teen-agers living with cancer is coming. 3rd: the children, their doting parents and relatives.

Yes, there is still a lot of funding and volunteer work that needs to be done but through collaboration with different supporters, we will get there faster. Kids of Hope is an information education project of the Davao Children’s cancer Fund Inc. Do contact them
