JERICHO ROSALES – Famous actor Jericho Rosales and his wife Kim Jones were able to raise funds that allowed 20 houses to be built.
Social media influencer and model, Kim Jones, is the wife of actor Jericho Rosales. And in a previous article, along with surfing skills and their surfboards, they joined the team to rescue the flood victims and stranded residents in Marikina City amid the typhoon Ulysses.
They were lauded for their determination and own will to help in their own little way. Soaked in floodwaters, they sought ways to evacuate the stranded residents. They are both aware that flooding is the major problem of the area if there’s a heavy downpour.
But their help did not stop there. They launched a crowd-funding page for their Typhoon Ulysses relief efforts and through this, they were able to raise Php 3,348,197.94 in total. They use the money to buy food, medicine, water, hygiene kits, shoes, and clothing for the victims of the typhoon that took place last year.
And now, even after roughly a year that has passed already, they continued working for the victims in Cagayan province. Through Ulysses Relief Fund where their friends and fans sent their donations, the collected amount allowed them to build 20 houses for 20 families for Project Salinong. This is a shelter assistance operation for the typhoon-hit victims in Baggao, Cagayan.
“We’re happy to share that with the help of one of the best titas of Manila (@marinezelizalde), our friends too many to mention, and you who donated to the cause, Ulysses Relief Fund were also able to help build 20 houses for 20 families to Project Salinong in Baggao, Cagayan!” he wrote in his post.
The 42-year-old actor also shared some snaps of the building of houses where the 20 families who are victims of the typhoon will be living soon. Also, being a surfer, in 2009, Jericho did the same thing. He rescued stranded residents in their village in Marikina during the onslaught of tropical storm Ondoy.
