Jane de Leon took to social media to express her support for the embattled ABS-CBN and stressed that she stands in solidarity with its employees, who are currently facing retrenchment following the decision of the House committee not to give the network a new franchise.
“Masakit po sa akin ang nangyari sa ABS-CBN dahil pangalawang tahanan ko na rin po ito na siyang nagbigay sa akin ng mga opportunities to gradually reach my goals in life, na unti-unting nagpabago sa buhay ko at ng aking pamilya. And I will forever be thankful sa ABS-CBN and its management,” she posted on her Instagram.
The actress stressed that her support for the network is not just measured by joining the rallys organized to appeal and to call for the return of the media giant on television and radio.
“My support to the current crisis that the network is facing right now is not just measured by going out in the streets in this time of pandemic. Alam kong para sa nakakarami sa atin, masakit ang closure ng ABS-CBN. Nakikiisa at nakikisimpatya rin po ako sa mga kapwa ko Kapamilya na nawalan ng kabuhayan," she remarked.
She also pointed out that the risk of the current health crisis is very much prevalent.
“However, let us not forget that in the bigger picture, we are still at risk because we all have an invisible enemy to deal with. Our health and that of our loved ones are at stake. As the COVID infection rate in our country continues to rise, hospitals and facilities are nearing, if not reached, full capacity,” she stated.
The Darna star also stated that she is concerned for the plight of the frontliners.
“Let’s not forget that our frontliners continue to face life and death situation as they are being challenged in saving more lives. Dadagdag pa ba tayo sa lumolobong bilang at patuloy na pagtaas ng COVID cases sa ating bansa?”
The Kapamilya star added that "we can show support in many ways."
She continued, "Let us not be judgmental and imposing on what others should do according to personal standards and beliefs. Wag po sanang mangibabaw ang galit sa ating puso, bagkus ay pairalin natin ang respeto sa isa’t isa at umasang malalampasan din natin lahat ito.”
Jane also remarked that the little things we do can go a long way when it comes to helping other people.
"Let’s continue to do better to improve ourselves and continue helping those in need. Everyone is capable of this. Even a little goes a long way. Tuloy po ang buhay at tuloy din po ang suporta natin sa pinagdadaanan ng ating network at mga kapwa natin Kapamilya,” she stated.
She reminded everyone that prayer is the most powerful weapon that we have in this time of crisis.
"Let us keep the faith. God bless po sa ating lahat! This is Jane de Leon, your Kapamilya," she concluded.
