PCMC, also known as the Philippine Children’s Medical Center, is where most sick children gets treated. A government-run hospital, this is where the poorest of the poor find relief from their ailments.

So imagine the surprise of these children when a star in the form of the gorgeous Barbie Forteza dropped by for a visit!

Take a look at that heart-melting hug below!11822702_10153896377539879_4868997449463226810_n

Barbie hugging one of her 18 roses. Who has the bigger smile? :)

Barbie along with her sponsors have joined PCMC’s Adopt-a-Room Program. Under the program, a sponsor will “adopt” a room, and all earnings from that room shall be donated to the Charity Wards of the same hospital.

In return, the PCMC decided to help organize Barbie’s 18th birthday celebration, with a special twist: instead of having the usual male friends (and celebrities) as her 18 roses, PCMC presented 18 children!

Here are some of them:11825961_10153896377199879_8172679018884573688_n
