Angel Locsin explains why she avoids discussing her charity efforts on cam.




Angel Locsin was recently named as the new ambassador of the anti-piracy program of Optical Media Board (OMB). This was announced in a press conference held on December 20, 2019 by OMB.


Angel, who is also known for her humanitarian work, personal advocacies, and support of the Philippine National Red Cross also mainly benefiting programs related to education, indigenous people, and fighting violence against women and children, is now lending her new voice to a new cause — a fight against piracy.


“Honestly, hindi ko kasi talaga parang hindi ko iniisip na parang ako lang. Para sa akin kasi tayong lahat ambassador nito kasi ito yung industriyang bumubuhay sa mga pamilya natin, bumubuhay sa atin. So dapat tulungan din natin ang industrying ‘to,” the actress said.


“I’m very flattered sa mga magagandang salita na sinabi nila chairman and sana matulungan niyo po kami na para maihatid sa mga kababayan natin na kung ano yung nakasalalay kapag namirata tayo. Sino yung mga buhay na maaapektuhan, mga pamilyang magugutom, mawawalan ng trabaho at syempre ‘pag nahuli po tayo ay mayroong parusa. Mabigat din po. So iwasan po natin ang pamimirata. Iyan po ang aking mensahe po sa mga nanunood ngayon,” she added.




She also revealed that she had her share of own experiences of being victimized by piracy and how this crime affects the of people behind our dying movie industry.


During her interview after the press conference, it was inevitable that her recognition as one of the Heroes of Philanthropy by Forbes Asia was discussed despite her efforts to humbly dissented the remark.


“Honestly wala akong nasagot na interview tungkol diyan kase parang bukod sa nahihiya talaga akong pag-usapan yung mga ganung bagay... katulad nung gustong gusto mong i-acknowledge kasi Forbes Asia, napaka-surreal lang talaga nung pakiramdam na mapabilang ka katabi nung mga naglalakihang mga tao. Pero nakakalungkot syempre kasi napabilang ka dun kasi naaalala ko kung bakit ka nandoon e. Yung may mga taong nagsuffer, may mga nasalanta, namatay, mga ganyan so nakakalungkot,” she shared.


She also added, “Ayoko talaga pag-usapan sa totoo lang pero iniisip ko nalang na baka isa ‘tong paraan para maka-inspire pa ng mga kabataan, ng mga nanunood ngayon na tumulong din. Wala kayo dapat antayin na oras. ‘Pag may nangangailangan wala ng tanong tanong tulungan niyo.”
