The 3 Million worth donation is expected to help make the shelter more conducive to every child’s recovery. This includes:
(1) over 27,000 various personal care products such as body wash, soap and toothpaste items
(2) 5 43” Full HD TVs
(3) 28 Dual Inverter Airconditioning units
(4) 2 Top Load Washing Machines
(5) 2 Side by Side Refrigerators.

The House of Hope Foundation, located inside the Southern Philippines Medical Center compound (SPMC), is a charitable group that provides temporary shelter to children with cancer. SPMC is the only hospital in the whole of Mindanao that offers free cancer treatment to children. Since a large majority of its patients are indigent families with no place to stay while they are undergoing treatment, the House of Hope provides a sanctuary for them.
