Angel Locsin, a real-life Angel we needed amid the pandemic!

It is getting harder to keep track what's normal nowadays. The widespread of COVID-19 has taken the country by storm and has rendered most of our kababayans struggling. It has been a question of whether or not everything will still go back to normal one day after the other and some days, it has been really frustrating.

Healthcare workers, frontliners, small business owners, and minimum wage earners are just few of those who are badly affected by the pandemic and it is a no secret that people need help. Thankfully, in times like these, there are people who lend a helping hand in any way possible.

Angel Locsin is a godsend real-life Angel amid the pandemic. Since the breakout of the virus, the actress has been restless in helping others. She started her mission of helping the frontliners by setting up a make-shift home away from home where healthcare workers of Taguig can take a break and sleep.

#UniTENTweStandPH is another one of the initiatives Angel Locsin spearheaded. The fundraising campaign has been widely acknowledged that in 24 hours, they are able to raise Php1M and has accumulated a total of Php11M in just 19 days. Donations were used to buy isolation tents to help solve overcrowding in some hospitals. In just 1 month, more than 200 tents were delivered and set-up to 135 hospitals in the metro and neighboring provinces.

The pandemic lasted longer than what we expected or prepared for. From the hopes that it will only last for a few weeks became months and acknowledging that there is still a need for help, Angel Locsin, Anne Curtis, and Dimples Romana decided to re-launch their 2009 project Shop and Share. With the prized items donated by their friends in the industry that was put on sale and auctioned, the team raised Php6M which was divided equally to 5 different municipalities and Philippine Red Cross.

The past few months was never easy, one solid proof is the increasing number of community pantries sprouting all over the country. Angel Locsin having the most genuine intention set-up her own to celebrate her birthday just recently.

Listed above are some of the initiatives Angel Locsin spearheaded amid the pandemic. Not that there's a need to keep track but knowing that there's someone out there who are always ready to help others sparks hope and inspiration in these trying times.
