Bea Alonzo Meets ‘Mama’s Favorite’ Vico Sotto in Pasig Relief Effort

Now, this is a meet-up that's been long-awaited by the Internet community!

For this year’s Father’s Day celebrations, Bea Alonzo, along with her charity organization I Am Hope, went out to spend the day helping and reaching out to those who are most affected by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

As part of her advocacy, Bea has personally gone to Pasig City to turn over 100 relief bags and medical supplies to Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto. (Read: Pasig City Raises P1.2 Billion to Buy Gadgets for Online Classes)

The Kapamilya superstar posted a picture on her Instagram to document what seems to be her first encounter with the millennial mayor who also happens to be the son of veteran actress, Coney Reyes.

“Hi, Mama! Nakilala ko na ang paborito mo!” Bea jokingly wrote on her caption. She was referencing to the blockbuster film, Four Sisters and a Wedding, where Coney played the role of Grace Salazar—the strong-willed mother of five children that included one of Bea’s most iconic characters, Bobbie Salazar.

Hi Mama! Nakilala ko na ang paborito mo! 🤣 Joke! Team I AM HOPE went to Pasig this afternoon to turnover relief bags and disinfectants for the frontliners. Thank you, Mayor Vico Sotto and Cong.

In the caption, Bea also thanked Mayor Vico and Pasig Rep. Roman Romulo for helping out in her organization’s relief activities. “In line with Father’s Day, we intend to celebrate the fathers who choose to serve the community by cleaning the streets and picking up our garbage,” the actress added.

Mayor Vico then replied to Bea’s witty post by thanking her for the donations and greeting her and her family a happy father’s day. 

Bea’s Humanitarian Work

Over the course of the months-long quarantine brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Bea has been actively supporting communities affected by the crisis through her humanitarian organization, I Am Hope. 

Last month, Bea, together with actor Vhong Navarro, prepared 500 food packs for the stranded students of the University of the Philippines Diliman, the members of the organization Youth for Nationalism and Democracy, and the staff at the Office of Vice President, Leni Robredo.

Bea and I Am Hope also sent relief goods to displaced jeepney drivers of Manila during the enhanced community quarantine (Read: Here’s How You Can Help Jeepney Drivers Affected by the Lockdown). Around the end of May, the actress also started a donation platform to provide for the immediate and long-term needs of frontliners. The initiative was able to raise more than P9 million worth of cash and in-kind donations, reaching up to 44 hospitals and 36 communities.
