Glaiza de Castro extended a helping hand to the victims of Typhoon Ulysses in Baler, where she had been staying amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Kapuso actress opened up on how “bittersweet” it was to finally return to the tropical paradise, only to see it still reeling from the onslaught of the typhoon.


“Ang bittersweet ng biyahe pabalik ng Baler. Masaya dahil andito na ulit pero nakakalungkot din makita na apektado ang ilan dahil sa bagyo,” she said on Instagram on Nov. 21.

(The journey going back to Baler is bittersweet. I am happy as I am here again but it is still saddening to see that some were affected by the typhoon.)


De Castro’s post came with black and white photos showing the devastation of Typhoon Ulysses in Baler. Some photos meanwhile show the residents of Baler receiving relief goods from De Castro and others.

“Pero unti unti, aahon tayo. Sa lahat ng naging bahagi ng pagtulong, maraming maraming salamat sa mabubuti niyong puso,” she said. (But little by little, we will rise again. To all those who took part in sending aid, thank you very much for your good hearts.)

“Bagama’t marami pa rin ang hindi pa napupuntahan, sana ay maging daan ito para maipaabot natin sa kanila sa susunod ang tulong sa kahit na anong uri ng paraan,” De Castro added.

(Even though there are many places we still have not visited, I hope this serves as a way for us to aid them in any way next time.)

Before going to Manila, De Castro had been quarantining in Baler with her parents and her Irish boyfriend, David Rainey.


During the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses, De Castro was already in Manila and she expressed her concerns for her parents as they were left in Baler. Fortunately, the actress’s parents remained safe from the typhoon.

Aside from staying in Baler during the lockdown, De Castro also owns a bed and breakfast called Casa Galura in the municipality. The establishment’s name is based on her real surname. JB
