KC Concepcion raised P200,000 to provide boats for fishermen in Bicol who were severely affected by Super Typhoon Rolly and Typhoon Ulysses.

The actress raised the amount through her jewelry line, Avec Moi by Kristina, which dedicated its sales from Nov. 17 to 27 to the fishing communities. Concepcion then handed over the money to the World Wildlife Fund for Nature Philippines’ (WWF Philippines), as per her Instagram post yesterday, Nov. 27.

Using the donations, the group will purchase 2,511 fiberglass boats for the fishermen as part of its Project Sulong campaign.

Along with the monetary donation, Concepcion will also provide 200 packs of relief goods to communities in Cagayan Valley. Each pack is worth P500 and will be sent to the typhoon-hit region through the Office of the Vice President’s Kaya Natin! Movement.

Concepcion has been actively taking part in various relief efforts since the recent typhoons ravaged parts of Luzon. Aside from donating a portion of her jewelry line’s proceeds, she is auctioning off some pre-loved gowns as well to raise more funds for fishing communities in need.  /ra
