Museo Pambata celebrates 23rd birthday anniversary with giftgiving activity

 On December 17, 2017, Museo Pambata (MP) marked its 23rd anniversary by giving underprivileged kids of Manila an early Christmas treat - a gift-giving activity led by MP President, Dr. Nina Yuson with the museum's sponsors and donors.
Museo Pambata opened to the public four days away from Christmas in 1994, so it has been a tradition to celebrate this most special time of the year together with the museum's anniversary.
The double bash on December 17 was the merriest yet, as 800 children from various children's centers and Manila barangays filled up the museum to watch live shows and receive Christmas gift packages.
Museo Pambata's Old Manila room was alive with performances by the Minstrels Rhythm of Hope, Kaibigan Foundation Children's Choir, Inetnon Gefpa'go dance group from Guam, Insiana dance group from Lucban, Quezon, Children's Joy Foundation and Harrie Wharmby.
