Actress and humanitarian aid worker, Angel Locsin, has been called a real-life angel for rescuing health workers by providing them tent sleeping quarters as the frontliners have been reporting for work even during the community quarantine to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the Philippines.
Named a Forbes Asia “Hero of Philanthropy” for quickly coming to the aid of disaster-stricken communities, Angel Locsin again went into full action as the Philippines’ capital and the Luzon island went on lockdown COVID-19 on March 16, 2020.
Locsin made a call on March 20 for beds and other donations as she started setting up sleeping quarters for the exhausted and stranded health workers while public transportation was suspended during the lockdown.

MANILA — It's mission accomplished for "The General's Daughter" star Angel Locsin, as she announced Monday that she has achieved the goal of her fundraising initiative in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.
Locsin, 34, launched #UniTentWeStandPH on March 25, with the goal of helping address overcrowding at hospitals by providing specialized tents for patients with the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
As of April 13, the program has raised P10,956,702.98, Locsin announced through an Instagram video that also shows the breakdown of expenses, including the purchase of the 12x24-meter tents.
What started out as a relief drive with 7 hospital beneficiaries within Metro Manila, has since ballooned to a massive project that continues to deliver tents, medical supplies, as well as personal protective equipment to 150 hospitals including those from neighboring provinces.
REFLECTIONS: Dear Angel
In Marawi, you were the star of the night, the star that kept shining for the good of all. But you were not a Darna when you came to rescue your people, you were an Angel sent from up above, with the golden light of pureness in your heart. You saw others homeless but you came to them capeless, to meet them as an Angel where you were needed. You gave packs of food, school supplies, and other necessary goods in bulk. You visited them in evacuation centers, as a missionary of the divine. Indeed, in Marawi, you were an Angel.
'Real-life Angel': Actress Angel Locsin needs no superpowers to help out
Photos of actress Angel Locsin giving out aid in the aftermath of the series of Mindanao quakes have made waves online, with people calling her a "real-life Darna" or a "real-life angel."
Known for playing heroine "Darna" on-screen, Locsin has been hailed for showing heroism off-camera, having been proactive in supporting emergency response.
One instance was the wake of Super Typhoon Yolanda in November 2013 where she used social media to call for help and flew to the worst-hit areas to distribute aid.
Locsin also put up her "dream car," a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, up for auction, with bids reaching as high as P1.8 million during a Sagip Kapamilya online auction.
And then in 2017, Locsin was at ground zero of the siege in Marawi City, handing out food packs and school supplies to those displaced by clashes between government troops and terrorists.
Netizens call Angel Locsin ‘Darna’ as she asked about the needs of Taal eruption victims and helped them.
Netizens referred to actress Angel Locsin as ‘Darna’ anew after Angel asked the needs of the victims of the Taal volcano eruption. The volcano erupted January 12, 2020 leaving a lot of people living nearby with no electricty, no food and no water.
The Philippine government is mobilizing all available agencies to provide assistance to affected people and areas.
Charity work ni Angel Locsin sa Marawi
AKAKALUNGKOT na sa kabila ng malinis na intensiyon ni Angel Locsin na matulungan ang mga nagsilikas sa giyera sa Marawi City ay may mga namba-bash pa sa kanya.
Sekreto ang pagdalaw ni Angel sa evacuation centers ng Marawi at sa Balo-i, Lanao del Norte bilang volunteer ng relief operation ng Rural Missionaries of the Philippines (RMP), pero hindi siyempre naiwasang makilala siya.
Sa kagustuhan ni Angel na makita ang sitwasyon ng evacuees at personal na makapag-abot ng tulong, hindi naiwasang kumalat sa social media ang kanyang mga litrato na pinagmulan ng inintriga. May kumukuwestiyon kung bakit kailangan pa raw i-publicize ang kanyang ginagawa sa Marawi evacuees.
Sa isang Facebook post na nabasa namin ay ipinagtanggol si Angel ng isang netizen.
“She wanted to remain anonymous, but how can this event be kept as a secret if she, herself, Ms. Angel Locsin wants to personally distribute the goods to the evacuees staying at Maahad Abdul Hamid (one of the recognized evacuation center) at Balo-i, Lanao del Norte. It was indeed a blessed Jum’ah!
“May Allah subhanu wa ta’ala grant the desires of her heart. She always have a heart for us, muslims. MashaAllah!”
Para sa mga hindi nakakaalam, hindi ito ang unang charity work ni Angel. Alam ng mga taga-Red Cross at maraming cause-oriented group na palagi siyang volunteer kapag sinasalanta ng kalamidad ang iba’t ibang probinsiya sa bansa.
Nagpunta rin siya noon sa Eastern Visayas pagkatapos ng bagyong Yolanda at sumasama rin sa iba’t ibang relief operations.
Hindi bago ang aktres sa volunteerism dahil ambassador siya ng Philippine National Red Cross.
Dahil sa bashers, hindi na napigilan ni Neil Arce, kaibigan at rumored suitor ni Angel at producer ng N2 Productions na mag-react.
“I just read someone’s post here on Facebook sabi, ‘When you do charity, do it quietly.’ Saw the comments sections as well ang dami nilang alam.
“The person you are talking about went to the most dangerous area in the Philippines unannounced and without bodyguards or even government supervision.
“She risked her life just to help our countrymen. Media picked it up on her 2nd day there, hindi po ‘yon pinatawag and hindi pinlano. She spent her own money and wanted to do it as quietly as possible.”
Patuloy pa ni Neil, “What have you done to help? What have you done to inspire people to help? Pati ‘yung mga nagco-comment puro press pa kayo. Bring it on, isulat niyo na ko ng masama, wala akong paki.
“I know there are still good people out there but you people bashing people who are just trying to help others, you are scum.”
Samantala, nagpasalamat si DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo sa ginawa ni Angel via Twitter: “Thank you, Ms. Angel Locsin for calling attention to the plight of Marawi evacuees. We hope more Filipino youth emulate women like Ms. Angel Locsin who speaks and stands for others.
“None of us can be like Darna & fly to rescue people. But we can be like Ms. Angel Locsin & care for those in need like the Marawi evacuees,” depensa pa ni Sec. Taguiwalo kay Angel. (ADOR SALUTA)
Real-life 'Darna' Angel Locsin extends help to Taal Volcano victims
The Filipina actress known for playing heroine 'Darna' needs no superpowers to help out
Ang Laban at Tapang ng isang Angel Locsin
BILIB TALAGA AKO sa aktres na si Angel Locsin. Iba ka talaga! Hindi na ako nabibigla sa mga gawain mo na tahimik lang pero kumikilos.
Sa presscon ng bagong serye na La Luna Sangre last Monday sa Dolphy Theater sa ABS-CBN ay itong isyu ng tunggalian sa Marawi City ng mga Maute Group at ng mga militar sana ang itatanong ko sa ‘yo backstage dahil alam ko na tahimik ka lang, pero may sasabihin ka. Kaso pagkatapos ng open forum at pikturan onstage with the entertainment media ay bigla kayong hinatak ng mga handlers ninyo. Pero hindi ko alam na may agenda ka na bago ka pa magtungo sa Mindanao. Tinapos mo muna ang trabahong showbiz bago mo hinarap ang mga isyus ng mga Maranao na “bakwet: na nagsipag-alisan ng Marawi para makaiwas sa kaguluhan.
Nagulat ako na bumulaga sa social media tulad ng Facebook na ang “No Media Coverage or No Photo-Op” na pagkilos mo nang nagtungo ka sa evacuation centers kung saan kita ang tapang at lakas ng loob mo nang sumugod ka last Thursday (June 8) sa Mindanao para in your own little ways ay makatulong ka. The day before umalis ka para umayuda sa mga Maranao ay wala kang nababangit.
Angel Locsin leads local celebrities’ quick action to help Taal Volcano eruption victims
Actress-philanthropist and real-life Darna Angel Locsin has once again quickly reacted to extend help to disaster victims, this time for the evacuees who fled the Taal Volcano eruption last Sunday.
Locsin, a 2019 Forbes Asia Hero of Philanthropy, immediately went on Twitter and Instagram to call for donations and looked for ways to send help right after the January 12, 2020, Taal Volcano eruption that sent toxic volcanic ash over a wide area from Batangas to Cavite, Metro Manila, and even Rizal province.
