Arci Muñoz sends food packs to Antipolo community, calls for govt aid
MANILA, Philippines—Arci Muñoz has been donating food packs to a community affected by the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Antipolo, Rizal.
The actress shared a picture of her with the food in plastic bags on Instagram Wednesday, April 8 and said, “We are on our 3rd batch of handing out goods for a small community near us. We were told that help has not reached them since the ECQ started.”
Muñoz appealed for the local government to step in: “There are 150-200 families and these goods can only last for a couple of days. I hope this reaches our local government because we really need your help.”
The post also contained information on how to help the Sitio Mahayhay community in Muntindilaw, Antipolo City.
With the ECQ extended until April 30, several households remain without income. Celebrities such as Ruffa Gutierrez, KC Concepcion and Bela Padilla are among those who have extended aid to families in need.
