The PCG said they assisted the actor in the distribution of relief items like rice, canned goods, instant noodles, biscuits, coffee and chocolate drink.

But the celebration of he lovestruck actor is not complete without his Juliet, actress Julia Barreto who was with him during the entire relief operation.

Anderson expressed his gratitude to the PCG Public Affairs led by Commodore Armand Balilo, PCG Logistics Systems Command, PCG Station Subic, and the World Vision Philippines for the smooth and successful relief operations.

“Nagpapasalamat ako kasi kasama ko kayo sa birthday ko. Sana nakapagbigay ng kaunting saya sa inyo ang pagbisita namin dito. Hiling ko rin na maging ‘partner’ kami ng komunidad na ito sa mga susunod pang pagkakataon (I’m grateful because you celebrated my birthday with me. I hope our visit here gave you a little fun. I also wish that we would be a ‘partner’ of this community in the future),” Anderson said in a statement.

The Coast Guard said the Lupang Pangako Resettlement Area was built in 1993 by the World Vision Philippines to provide homes for the displaced Aetas in Botolan, Zambales.

Anderson recently confirmed in a television show his romantic relationship with Barreto. The couple became the subject of discussions in social media over allegations that they both left their partners to start their own love story.

Anderson was with actress Bea Alonzo during that time while Barreto was then romantically involved with her love team Joshua Garcia.
