MANILA, Philippines — Young actress Maris Racal’s call for donations about a week ago has proven fruitful after having raised over P600,000 for the frontliners of Tagum City amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Racal, along with nonprofit organization (NPO) Agbay Tagum, is pledging the donations for the procurement of personal protective equipment (PPEs) as hospitals in the Davao del Norte city experience a shortage of the essential equipment.


“As of April 1, we have already collected more than ₱600,000.00! Thank you to the donors, this will greatly help our frontliners in Tagum City,” Racal said on Twitter on Friday.

She noted, however, that they are still in need of more help as they want to reach more hospitals.

Concerned citizens may donate to the cause through the following bank accounts:

BDO — Mariestella Racal (01094-002-9979)
BPI — Rochelle P. Montero (2379-0197-17)
PBCOM — Rafael Magat (0297201006107)
GCASH — 0917-717-8746
PAYPAL — [email protected]

Donors should then fill out a form at https://tinyurl.com/agbaytagum and email proof of transaction to [email protected]. They will then receive an acknowledgment receipt via email from the NPO.
