“Over the past decade, Locsin has donated as much as 15 million pesos to causes such as educational scholarships for students, supporting the economic and political rights of indigenous people, and ending violence against women and children,” Forbes said.
Recently, the 34-year old actress extended a PhP 1 million worth of donations and personally sent the supplies of food to the earthquake victims in Mindanao.
“During the 2017 battle between the Philippine army and Islamist rebels in Marawi, she joined the Rural Missionaries of the Philippines, donating and distributing food packets and school supplies to tens of thousands of displaced victims,” Forbes mentioned.
Moreover, the actress emphasized that those moments were the time when we have to act as fast as we can to save lives and rebuild communities, and we don’t even have to think why.
Angel Locsin did not only portray being “Darna” , a Filipino superhero, on television but also embodying a life-saving character in her life.
She also highlighted on her previous interview in 2017 that being a superhero does not entail to have a costume.
