Last Tuesday, December 17, was one of the most memorable year-ending events of By Gems Party Kingdom (BGPK). In coordination with Zamboanga-based NGO (Non-Government Organization) “I CAN Make A Difference” and the multi-awardee Tzu Chi Foundation, BGPK brought cheers, laughter, and joy to the pediatric cancer patients of Zamboanga City Medical Center (ZCMC). Other pediatric patients as well the patient’s parents and hospital staff were also entertained in this free annual BGPK Christmas presentation in this government hospital institution.

For more than 2 hours, BGPK Gemster or staff brought happiness and wide smile with their party hosts, magician, puppet show, and ventriloquist. Prizes and balloons were also given together with stuff toys from Tzu Chi. Games, singing, and dancing with the special appearance of Pink Minnie Mouse  completed the joyful event. Since laughter is one of nature’s best medicines, this is what transpired this day topped with a prayer that God will heal all the pediatric patients of ZCMC.

BGPK Area Manager Kim Jalon said this activity is one of the CSR (Community Social Responsibility) programs of BGPK aside from offering educational scholarships, conducting livelihood seminars, and sponsoring advocacy events. After the Zamboanga siege, BGPK also performed for free in evacuation centers as a stress debriefing activity.Thanks to Ronald Villano of I CAN for taking the pictures in this spread.
