Gretchen Ho will once again be giving away bicycles to deserving people after the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) is lifted in Metro Manila.

The TV host and reporter is looking for 50 beneficiaries to apply for the said giveaway under her Woman-in-Action initiative, noting that “a bike can spell the difference between keeping a livelihood or not.”

Those who want to apply “need to JUSTIFY WHY YOU ARE DESERVING, and you need to show proof when my team contacts you,” Ho, also a former collegiate volleyball player, said on Instagram yesterday, Aug. 13.

“You may also nominate someone lalo na kung wala silang (especially if they do not have) internet but we’ll go through the same verification process. We’ll be giving these away after MECQ,” she added.
