The threat of COVID-19 all over the world has not only exposed the bad, but people who continue to be a source of inspiration in these trying times for Filipinos in and out of the country.
For one, Filipino celebrities have been doing their service to the people in many ways. Not only are they using their talent and fame to raise funds, some of them have been serving as frontliners themselves!
It’s been years since we last heard about Ronnie Liang. The singer-actor is now a certified army reservist and has been exerting time and effort to help the country fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Together with his army brothers, Ronnie was assigned at the MacArthur Highway in Valenzuela City to transport stranded health workers to their workplaces around the national capital region.
Basing on his photos and videos posted on social media, Ronnie has been manning the frontlines while also spreading good vibes and inspiration. The singer-actor even teamed up with director Njel De Mesa to record a fight song against the coronavirus disease entitled, “Kaya Natin ‘To.”
Carol Banawa has given us some of the most iconic OPM hits to date, including “Iingatan Ka,” and “Bakit ‘Di Totohanin,” which has become classic favorites among many Filipinos. Today, the 39-year-old hitmaker is yet again making the Filipinos proud as she joins the medical frontliners in the United States battling COVID-19.
Carol earned her nursing degree in 2018 and became a registered nurse in the same year.
Agot Isidro may not be a soldier or a nurse like the others on the list, but the singer-actress has been lending her hands and voice as an all-around volunteer alongside Vice President Leni Robredo’s staff. Agot volunteered to help the Angat Buhay Program which is an anti-poverty program spearheaded by Vice President Robredo that aims to help the poor Filipinos.
