Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt is awed by the beauty of Manila Bay following a massive clean-up drive by thousands of volunteers and government officials last Sunday.
The Victoria’s Secret model last Tuesday retweeted a before-and-after photo of the bay to applaud its now pristine view.
“Sobrang ganda! Sana alagaan natin ang Pilipinas,” she wrote.
The movement is part of the three-phase rehabilitation project of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources for the bay, which ultimately aims to “restore and maintain its waters to SB level to make them fit for swimming, skin diving, and other forms of contact recreation,” according to Department of the Interior and Local Government Secretary Jonathan Malaya.
Meanwhile, despite having gone to different countries as a model, the Philippines is the closest to Kelsey’s heart – from time to time, she would fly all the way from New York back to her home country to take a short vacation within the most beautiful islands of Palawan and Siargao, among other Philippine gems.
