MANILA, Philippines — A day after celebrating her 35th birthday, actress Angel Locsin offered a pleasant surprise when she announced that her "Unitent We Stand PH" initiative concluded with P11.35 million raised, 246 tents (225 isolation and 21 sanitation) set up, and 135 hospitals benefiting from a range of donations.

All within a span of 19 days.

“In the beginning, our only dream was to provide tents to hospitals for patients, for our frontliners, to address the challenge in overcrowding, and to help lessen the increase of spreading the virus in hospitals, but because you were all so generous and kind, we received from you donations of food, PPEs, aircon and many others kaya naman po dahil sa inyo (so it’s only because of you) we were able to give out not only tents but also PPEs and other supplies,” read Angel’s Friday post.

#UniTENTweStandPH Campaign to help solve overcrowding in hospitals. To help stop the spread of the corona virus disease (COVID-19) and due to the overcrowding in public and private hospitals, we are launching a fund-raising campaign here in gogetfunding.com to help set up additional tents for patients. The objective is to accommodate more patients who need immediate treatments while also prioritizing the safety of our health workers. As of now, we are targeting to set up at least 2 tents (12x24 meters) in seven hospitals which recently requested for our help: 1. South City Hospital and Medical Center (Daang Hari, Bacoor City) 2. Las Piñas Doctors Hospital 3. Las Piñas City Medical Center 4. St. Frances Cabrini Hospital and Medical Center (Sto. Tomas, Batangas) 5. UniHealth Parañaque Hospital and Medical Center 6. Binakayan Hospital and Medical Center (Kawit, Cavite) 7. PNP Hospital Each tent would cost around Php50,000 as per our experience when we set up tents at the Taguig Pateros District Hospital. If this campaign will be a success, we are hoping to reach other hospitals in Luzon and eventually in other parts of the country. I have avoided asking for financial donations but for now, it is best that we gather more resources and funding to be able to widen the reach, service and sustainability of this project. I would appreciate anything you can offer for this cause to help our fellow Filipinos survive this difficult time. Thank you so much in advance. ANGEL LOCSIN Link in bio????

She also remembered to thank her dedicated team, including devoted fiancé Niel Arce and BFF Dimples Romana, breaking down each member’s specific tasks and codename (spoiler alert: Angel is “Darna”).
