Popular television and movie actress, Angel Locsin, celebrated her birthday this year with the children of Payatas and other children of GABRIELA members from urban poor communities in Metro Manila. This is the second year that Angel Locsin opted to celebrate her birthday for a cause. The following is GABRIELA’s statement on the occasion.
ON ANGEL LOCSIN’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION WITH PAYATAS KIDS
GABRIELA National Alliance of Women expresses its deepest gratitude to actress Angel Locsin for spending her birthday and sharing her good fortune with the more than 300 poor children from Payatas and other communities in Metro Manila.
. In this time of crisis, it is highly admirable that someone who enjoys the good fortune of being a popular television and movie actor would look beyond herself and choose to impart her blessings with the less privileged.
Last year, Angel Locsin spent her birthday with the survivors of violence against women. This year, as she celebrates her birthday with the children of Payatas, we commend Angel Locsin for consistently supporting the cause of marginalized women and children.
