Actress Nanette Medved, a known philanthropist, just turned over eight classrooms to the war-torn city of Marawi. 

 

 

“So happy to be able to turn over 8 classrooms here in Marawi today. Thank you to the Maranao for your heartwarming hospitality especially given the circumstances,” she wrote, thanking the Maranao people for giving her a warm welcome as she turned over the eight classrooms to them. 

Nanette's generous donation was made possible through Generation Hope Inc., a non-profit organization she founded in 2014 for which she currently serves both as the Chair and the President.

 

 

Meanwhile, actress Iza Calzado commended her for being an inspiration to everyone. 

"You are such an amazing woman. Congratulations to you and Team Hope," Iza wrote in the comments. 

Nanette, who is best known for portraying Darna, was praised by a netizen for emulating the iconic Pinay superhero in real life. 

"That's what Darna do," the netizen remarked. 

Apart from her work at 'Hope,' she has also been part of the Advisory Board of ABS-CBN Foundation's social welfare program Bantay Bata from 2007-2012. Right now, she is a member of the National Advisory Council of World Wildlife Fund Philippines.

Before she rose to fame as an actress in the 80s, she first made appearances in several local commercials.
