MANILA, Philippines - Ms. Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach is scheduled to visit on Wednesday wounded soldiers at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Medical Center (AFPMC) in Quezon City.

AFP Medical Center chief Col. Joseph Acosta said the 30-minute visit would be beneficial to the well-being of patients.

“Patients are happy every time a well-known person visits them. If you are happy, it will be easier for you to recover,” he said.

Acosta said Wurtzbach is expected to visit about 40 battle casualties. She will also visit HIV patients who are being treated in other medical institutions.

“The visit surely lift up the spirits of our wounded soldiers and their families. Her (Wurtzbach) visit will not only offer words of inspiration but will also be a manifestation that they are not forgotten. Her visit is a message of peace to the peacemakers,” Armed Forces public affairs Col. Noel Detoyato said.
