Kapamilya star Jane de Leon, who traced her roots to Bohol, did her own fair share of donating amidst the Luzon-wide quarantine due to the COVID-19 threats.
She distributed packs of food and drinks to the elderly in Barangay Sitio Sibol, in Cainta, Rizal, amid the enhanced community quarantine imposed on the entire island of Luzon.
One Cainta San Isidro thanked the Darna star on its post on Facebook last Friday, March 20.
“Thank you jane for your concern in this time of crisis i hope this will served as inspiration to our fellow kababayans,And to be able to help in your own little way #Soar high Darna !!!!!,” a citizen said.
Observing the precautions against the disease, de Leon and those she donated to wore face masks while they received the goods indoors. Included in the packages the actress handed out were rice, canned food and bottles of water, as seen in photos accompanying the post.
De Leon also spoke about her effort on her own Instagram page on Saturday, March 21.
“Nagpaabot po kami ng aming tulong sa isang barangay that needed help. Nakakataba po ng puso na makita silang masaya,” she said.
“I keep on praying na bigyan pa ako ng Panginoon ng sapat na lakas para patuloy na makatulong pa sa mas nakakarami,” De Leon added.
De Leon’s mother was born and grew up in Ubujan, Tagbilaran City.
In Bohol, Governor Arthur Yap has ordered the implementation of a 24-hour curfew for senior citizens 65 years old and above, as well as residents below 18 in the province.
Experts have stated that those aged 60 years old and above are more vulnerable to the coronavirus.
