On the first day of Simbang Gabi last December 16, 2015, five groups of young, dynamic and talented merry carolers serenaded the employees of MediCard and Tulong Gulong beneficiaries at the MediCard Lifestyle Center in Makati City with their enchanting Christmas carols and contemporary Christmas songs. They all came in colorful attire complete with musical instruments and even danced energetically while singing or playing their instruments. This year’s MERRY CAROLERS were:

“A Christmas Wish for Bella and Marlon”

It was on a busy day of December 9, 2015, a Wednesday, when the officers of Kiwanis Club of Laguna Sparkling Rubies brought “another” two kids for check up, laboratory tests and possible surgery at the MediCard King’s Court Clinic in Makati under MediCard Foundation’s “Oplan Ngiti” program in partnership with Smile Train.

Bella Fiona Jacuiza, 7 months old from Fairview, Quezon City has a cleft lip while Marlon Baldago, 4 years old from Landayan, San Pedro, Laguna has a cleft palate. It was the sincere Christmas wish of the group and the kids’ parents to see Bella and Marlon wearing a redefined smile before Christmas day so despite the heavy traffic and the holiday rush, they did everything to have the tests done on time.

With an answered prayer, the two kids got their clearance for surgery on the next day. And on December 17, Bella underwent cheilopasty for her cleft lip while Marlon underwent palatoplasty for his cleft palate. Another answered prayer for a successful operation and a Christmas wish fulfilled for these two innocent children.

You too can refer an indigent child with a case of cleft lip or cleft palate by calling MediCard Foundation at 894-5555 or at 0908-8864722.
