Bea Alonzo was one of the local celebrities who offered help to victims of Typhoon Ulysses, which ravaged parts of Luzon including Metro Manila, earlier this week.
Based on her post on Friday, November 13, I Am Hope, a relief organization she co-founded with Rina Navarro, has donated relief goods, blankets, and hot meals to residents in Marikina and Cainta, which were among the worst-hit cities.
The Instagram page of I Am Hope also announced that it had sent relief goods, blankets, and clothes to Bicol and other provinces which were heavily hit both by the Typhoon Ulysses and Super Typhoon Rolly.
"Thank you for the kindness and generosity of our partners and donors. Dasal namin na makabangon sa pagsubok na ito ang ating mga kababayan," it said in a post.
Aside from Bea, other local stars who took part in efforts to lend aid to victims of Typhoon Ulysses include celebrity couple Jericho Rosales and Kim Jones, beauty queens Michele Gumabao and Billie Hakenson, and singer Donnalyn Bartolome.
Ulysses, the 21st tropical cyclone to hit the Philippines this year and the 8th for the past two months, battered Luzon Thursday, November 12, with heavy rainfall and strong winds that left parts of Metro Manila and nearby areas submerged.
It left at least seven people dead and forced tens of thousands of residents across the country to flee their homes, with some scrambling onto rooftops to await rescue amid severe flooding.
