Halfway home

/ 07:24 PM November 02, 2012

ROJAS. Dream come true.

Tahan-tahanan is a halfway home for children with non-communicable diseases who seek treatment in Metro Manila. Located at the ground floor of East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC), Diliman, Quezon City, and made possible by the assistance of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, the home is a dream come true for the pediatric oncology team led by Dr. Victoria Abesamis.

If you want to donate, volunteer or share your time and talent, please call manager Maggie Abilgos at 928-0611 loc. 711, or text  0933 268-4055.



Last week, the facility’s young beneficiaries joined PCSO in celebrating its 78th anniversary, led by PCSO general manager, lawyer Jose Ferdinand Rojas II. Merrymakers included Jackie Aquino and her daughter, Andrea, jazz luminary Boy Katindig, Elea Floresca, Rotary Club Midtown Diliman president Stauro Punongbayan, Lua Pazinato, Garie Concepcion, Rogelio Medina, Emer Guingon and Dayloe Ranario.

At the Women in Media Bulong Pulungan at Sofitel, Juico announced that sweepstakes booklets can be purchased at the PCSO office as Christmas gifts.
