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!

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:
The event was held at the lobby area of the PCMC:
The set up was very elegant, with the colors black, white and red really giving life to the celebration. Of course, the Comfit team were not to miss out this very important celebration. To show support to Barbie, the Comfit team provided a birthday cake as well as the amazing entertainer, magician, and puppeteer, Wanlu!
The event was hosted by the hilarious Tess Bomb!
The event started with Barbie entering the venue filled with so much energy. She then announced the room she adopted as part of her charity efforts during her 18th birthday. She was then awarded the Architect’s Certificate of Recognition for helping her build the room:
