Meanwhile, celebrities Anne Curtis-Heussaff and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid were among the latest celebrities who donated to her #UniTentWeStand fundraiser.
Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff’s tent donations were set up at the Veteran’s Memorial Medical Center while Regine Velasquez and Ogie Alcasid’s were set up at the Diliman Doctors Hospital.
The Kapamilya star, whose #UniTentWeStand crowdfunding initiative began last March 25, aims to provide additional rooms at hospitals experiencing overcrowding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Apart from setting up tents, Locsin also teamed up with designer Michael Leyva in distributing Personal Protective Gear (PPEs) to health workers and other frontliners.
As of this writing, the Philippines has already recorded 2,633 cases, with 107 deaths and 51 recoveries.
