MANILA, Philippines – After raising P3.3 million from the “Pagkain Para sa Pinoy” fund drive, actress Bela Padilla immediately went to work with members of the military to distribute relief goods.

On Thursday, March 19, the actress posted photos from when they shopped for basic goods and later went around Manila to distribute them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The actress then shared they picked up a security guard who was on the way home from work.

 

She also said that they are reloading new packs to be distributed to the next city.

 

Bela is one of many celebrities who have mobilized to help the poor after a lockdown on Luzon.

President Rodrigo Duterte announced Tuesday that he was placing the country in a state of calamity for 6 months because of the threat of the novel coronavirus. The entire Luzon is on lockdown, as part of the national government’s strategy to minimize its spread. The “enchanced community quarantine” over Luzon stays in place until April 12.

Bela began the drive with a tweet on March 15, hours before a Metro Manila “enhanced community quarantine” began. She went on to raise over P3 million even as the quarantine expanded to the whole of Luzon. – Rappler.com
