    by Rachel Perez .
  • It can be a bit stressful following the news during this global pandemic. But just as we all stay home and remain vigilant against the spread of COVID-19, let's not forget the frontliners that risk their lives every day.

    Many celebrities have used their status and reach to help health workers and other frontliners. Bela Padilla raised money for street vendors. Angel Locsin has been providing sanitation tents to hospitals. Judy Ann Santos, Marian Rivera, and Pokwang do what they do best: cook!

    Marian cooked menudo, a family specialty

    Marian Rivera cooked their family's specialty, the menudo recipe that has been passed to her by her Nanay Ingkang, for frontliners at the Quezon City General Hospital. She had help from Waltermart and Touch Mama for sending more stoves.

    "Maraming salamat sa inyong dedikasyon para sa kaligtasan naming lahat. Panalangin namin ang inyong kalakasan habang kinakaharap at tinatalo natin ang krisis na ito," Dingdong Dantes, who helped his wife pack the meals, wrote on Instagram on April 2, 2020.


    Apart from Nanay Ingkang's Menudo, Marian and Dingdong also distributed 1800 food packs to families of daily minimum wage earners through Andrew's Fund PH.

    The mama of two has also been tapped by Father Tito Calauag to be a "central kitchen" to cook food for poor families. Pokwang received some criticism for her charitable acts. She, however, reminded everyone that in the time of crisis, it's the right time to use social media to send good vibes instead of negativity.


    No amount of help is too little; every little thing counts.
