ANGEL LOCSIN Surveys Needs Of Taal Evacuees, Seeks Help On Twitter
Angel Locsin has often been called "a real-life angel" in her efforts to reach out and provide aid for victims of various man-made and natural disasters in the past.
Angel once again comes to their rescue after the heightened activity of the Taal Volcano on Sunday (Jan. 12) forced residents to evacuate to safer grounds. The day after, she took to Twitter to ask for an assessment on the needs of all the towns affected by the sudden eruption. "Anyone here na may na-conduct na assessment kung anong mga kailangan, anu-anong baranggays at ilang families per baranggay?" her post read.

In 2019, Angel was among 30 notable charity donors recognized by Forbes Asia in its annual "Heroes of Philanthrophy" list.
The actress—who is also an active member of the Philippine Red Cross—has flown to Tacloban during the aftermath of typhoon Yolanda in 2014 and to Marawi after the siege that displaced thousands of residents in 2017 to help in relief efforts. Just last year, she also flew to Northern Samar and Davao City to help victims of typhoon Tisoy and the 6.5-magnitude quake that hit Tulunan town, Cotabato, respectively.
As of writing, alert level 4 is still raised over the volcano. According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), this means "a hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days."
