Model-actress Ivana Alawi has joined her colleagues in extending help to people in need amid the coronavirus crisis.
The 23-year-old YouTube star uploaded some behind-the-scene photos that show them packing goods. There’s one of her mother and sister sitting beside tons of green eco-bags filled with food supplies, and another of sacks of rice, boxes of fruits, canned goods, noodles, and drinks.
“Pasensya na kayo sa itsura namin. Madaling araw na kami natapos mag pack ng mga pagkain na ipapamigay namin sa mga kababayang nangangailangan ng tulong,” she wrote as caption.
Then she ended her post by encouraging everybody to help in their own way.
“Maliit man yan o malaki, ang importante ay tumulong tayo,” she noted.
Actress and TV host Anne Curtis is still in Australia after giving birth to her first child with husband Erwan Heussaff a few weeks ago. Still, distance hasn’t hindered her from helping frontliners in the country.
Through her personal wish-granting foundation, Dream Machine, the actress donated 50 gallons of alcohol and 3000 pieced of medical gloves to four hospitals in the Philippines ,namely Research Institue of Tropical Medicine, San Lazaro Hospital, Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, and Lung Center of the Philippines.
On the Instagram account of Dream Machine, they shared this letter sent by the 35-year-old star: “To our Frontliners/Health Workers, I just want to say “Maraming Salamat Po!” for your dedication and hard work. I pray for your safety and hope makatulong po ito. May God continue to bless and protect you.”
According to the organization, the items are only the first batch of donations from Anne.
