In celebration of Women’s Month this March, the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center Advisory Board headed by Ram Sharma with the members of the board, SM City Baguio’s Assistant Mall Manager Jason Peña and Public Relations Officer Jill Galario and the BGHMC staff joined hands to distribute Christmas gift packs to the female patients at the OB Gyne and delivery wards of the BGHMC. The group was met by Dr. Gary Ong, hospital administration head.

The Christmas ‘Share a Joy” project of the BGH Advisory Board started in 2015, but stopped for three years because of the pandemic. Every year, the board sought out partnerships with different organizations among them, the Travel and Tour Management Association then headed by Arnel Fetalino, SM City Baguio, Baguio Midland Courier, FRB Foundation, Baguio Museum and Chandru Budhrani and some active members of the board composed of Vice Chair Joseph Rulla, Gloria Jasa, Virginia Valencia, Nonnette Bennett, Antoinette Hamada, Helen Tibaldo, the late Rose Carbonell, Kristine Sameon, Maria Ragma, Benito Tiong, Erdolfo Balajadia, Belita Fe Pena and Magda Dawawong of the BGHMC.

The “Christmas Share a Joy “ Christmas packs were given by SM City Baguio last December 2022, but because of the pandemic, the board waited for an auspicious time so they can hand the packages personally and unanimously decided on Women’s month. It was mainly to give joy and happiness at the same time to share and honor mothers.
