Amid the enhanced community quarantine, Catriona Gray donates rice
Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray donates rice to 6,000 families amid the enhanced community quarantine.
More than just being a beauty queen, Catriona is also known for her advocacy for the poor. She was been supporting the poor students in Tondo, Manila even before she was crowned as the most beautiful girl in the universe 2 years ago.
Amid the health crisis in the Philippines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Catriona is also doing her part to help the less fortunate families. During the recent video conference by the Miss Universe Organization’s #UniverseUnited campaign, Catriona Gray, along with Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach took part.
This campaign is intended to build a virtual community amid the health crisis, based on the report from The Philippine Star.
“I really implore everyone to use social media to express your views, whether it be for leadership, whether it be for your country, whether it be for your socio-economic situation, or what you’re going through,” the Fil-Aussie beauty queen said.
Catriona added that the voices of the people should be heard and that the leaders of the nation should also hear these voices. She also shared during the conference her “No Work, No Rice”. She has been working with non-profit organization Young Focus Philippines.
“So far it’s been amazing. We’ve been able to reach 6,000 families which is about 8,000 to 10,000 individuals through donating 60,000 kilograms of rice,” Catriona said.
She added that this crisis has given the chance to people to rise and display the ‘spirit of generosity’. For the beauty queen, this is the time to pay back to the community, based on the report.
