Darna strikes again!
Angel Locsin, who has been hailed as one of the Heroes of Philanthropy last year, seems to be living by the fulfillment of not receiving, but giving. For years, the actress has been very committed in doing charity works and choosing to donate financial resources to those in need.
Locsin may be a superstar in the entertainment industry, but she is just as big of a star when it comes to philanthropic endeavors, even right now, when we are in a crucial fight with COVID-19.
This health crisis led the celebrity philanthropist and her fiancé, Neil Arce, to work together to support our medical workers and frontliners who tirelessly commit their time, effort, and skills in fighting this pandemic.
“Hi everyone! @labellefete, @neil_arce and I, understand that life is hard right now, so we’ll refrain from asking you for financial donations. Instead, we would like to ask you for stuff that you already have.”– Angel Locsin
The actress and her team, together with the local government unit, aims to build sleeping tents for medical workers and frontliners so that they wouldn’t think of commuting after their shifts. This way, it would be easier for them to take some rest and gain energy after working untiringly.
Aside from these sleeping quarters, the Philippine Coast Guard thanked Locsin for giving out food and water while they were on patrol. In a Twitter post by the official PCG account says:
“Nagpapasalamat ang PCG Task Force Laban COVID-19 sa aktres na si Angel Locsin sa ibinahagi niyang pagkain habang sila ay nagpapatrolya sa Lakeshore, Taguig City …”
Locsin, in her post, also special thanked her friends from the industry, who, without a doubt, donated their taping beds to support our frontliners. She mentioned Anne Curtis-Heusaff, Bea Alonzo, Angelica Panganiban, Paulo Avelino, and many more.
If you wish to help and support her in giving temporary quarters or donate food and water to health workers you may contact the number she posted: 0917-899-6435.
