Actress-vlogger Bea Alonzo spent hours to cook meals for health workers and other frontliners, as her way of showing appreciation for their heroic efforts amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

On Instagram on Easter Sunday, April 12, the “Unbreakable” actress shared photos of the boxes of packed meals she and her team have sent out to various hospitals across the metro, including Fatima Hospital in Valenzuela, East Avenue Hospital, Lung Center of the Philippines and Philippine Heart Center in Quezon City.

“Happy Easter! For the first time, I tried to cook for one hundred people (but failed). I just ended up doing 98, but that’s okay. Given the circumstances, I decided not to be hard on myself because the core reason why I cooked in the first place is to give a little joy to our frontliners, and just by doing that, I already felt fulfilled,” she wrote as caption.

She went on to extend her gratitude to other groups and brands that volunteered to participate in the drive—led by I AM HOPE ORG, a group she co-founded with her friends—by similarly donating food “so we can make our fronliners’ day a little lighter.” 

Earlier, Bea led a charity drive to provide medical equipment for frontliners during the coronavirus pandemic by creating do-it-yourself face shields made out of foam, acetate and garter.

Aside from making face shields, she also distributed 100 gallons of ethyl alcohol and face masks, as well as other essentials such as vitamins and food. 

The Philippines as of Sunday, April 12, recorded 4,648 cases of COVID-19, including 297 deaths and 197 recoveries.
