Gerald Anderson is the latest celebrity to lend aid to those who have been affected by Typhoon Ulysses.

On Friday, November 20, the actor joined the Philippine Coast Guard's relief efforts for the residents in Isabela and Cagayan, which were among the worst-hit areas by the typhoon. 

Photos circulating on Facebook showed Gerald distributing relief goods in Tuguegarao, the capital city of Cagayan, and Cauayan, Isabela along with his PCG group.

On his Instagram page, the actor also posted photos and clips of the relief effort.

"Fulfilling day. Grateful to be in a position where I can bring amazing people together to help our countrymen. Salamat sa lahat ng nag-donate sa mga nasalanta ng #TyphoonUlysses. At sa Philippine Coast Guard for always supporting me and my team/squadron. Mabuhay," he wrote.

Gerald, 31, is an auxiliary officer of the PCG with the rank of lieutenant.

He joined the agency in December 2016 with his family as part of the agency's K9 Special Support Squadron. His team includes his father Randy, brother Ken, and sister Jeanifer.

Isabela and Cagayan were among the hardest-hit areas of Ulysses, which unleashed some of the worst flooding in years in the capital Manila and nearby provinces as it swept through Luzon last November 12.

The storm left at least 73 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.
