Its been a while since the humble community of Pause of a Cause been invited to make those in need happy and bring the smiles to their faces. But no matter. As long there is, PFAC will be happy to respond enthusiastically to it. 

We were invited by DukeNUS Medical School to be part of their Camp Simba, which was organised on June 3rd. Made up of students from both Duke-NUS Medical School and Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, their mission is to provide kids, whose parent, sibling or close relative who has or has had cancer a chance to have fun and relax within the three-day fun program. A retreat experience just to be kids! That’s one of their aims, to give children affected by a parent’s cancer the opportunity to be kids.

Its just like any other care giving event dedicated for kids and their loved ones. Just right for us PFAC to be there and give them the best they’ll ever need. And my Red Ranger fits nicely to the theme =)

Total we have Batman, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper and 3 Disney characters, including myself as the Power Ranger. The characters from Disney, which was Alice in Wonderland, Queen Elsa of Arendelle and Princess Anna of Arendelle from the animated movie, Frozen! WOW indeed! A mix and match of mainstream, iconic and amazing characters to fill the hearts and desires of the kids and families in need. Certainly looking forward for that day! =D

There’s various games been set up for them, and we just mingle in with the flow. Mainly the photobooth, which got us suddenly hooked into it till I feel we could just position ourselves there throughout the event! Hahaha! 

Indeed, the kids were surprised of our presence and this is where we bring in the action. Seeing their happy faces really make our day, as much as we make theirs. Its always been an impact to see superheroes or fantasy characters been invited to join the fun. Not just cosplaying, but to make the event an awesome one.
