Tonight at 7pm, more than 100 Kapamilya stars are performing from their homes to your screens for Pantawid ng Pag-ibig: At Home Together Concert. The fundraising concert for our fellow Filipinos whose livelihoods were affected by the ongoing COVID-19 threat will air on various ABS-CBN platforms including MYX channel, MYX Facebook Live, and MYX Philippines YouTube.
ABS-CBN launched the Pantawid ng Pag-ibig fund-raising campaign last March 19 in partnership with local government officials in Metro Manila and private companies to provide food and basic necessities to Filipinos greatly affected by the enhanced community quarantine.
While the government has appealed to the public to stay at home in order to help stop the spread of the virus, many Filipinos are unable to work or continue with their livelihood to sustain the needs of their families.
Through the donations from the public, ABS-CBN will be purchasing food and other basic necessities that the Filipino families need. The Pantawid ng Pag-ibig items will be turned over to the local government units in Metro Manila. All 17 Metro Manila mayors will then lead the preparation and distribution of relief packages for families in need.
“We hope that no Filipino will suffer from hunger at this difficult time. As we have proven many times before, it is our love and concern for each other that will get us through any crisis,” said ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigbak.
Those who would like to help may make a cash donation through ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.-Sagip Kapamilya bank accounts BPI peso account 3051-11-55-88, Metrobank peso account 636-3-636-08808-1, BDO peso account 0039301-14199. Find out more in the video below:
