Kris Aquino and her sons are currently staying in Puerto Galera due to the lockdown in Luzon.
She donated 25 sacks of rice to the tricycle drivers of the area as her way to help them.
The actress pointed out the plight of the drivers considering that the enhanced community quarantine effectively suspended public transportation.
In Kris' post, she said that it should have been 100 sacks of rice, however, she can't withdraw a huge sum as the nearest bank where she has an account is an hour away.
She only had to make use of an ATM to derive funds.
The actress reiterated in her post that she wasn't posting it to "magpa-bida" but would like to make a point that now is the best time for those who are financially blessed to give in accordance with their capacity.
The mayor also responded to her text and was very thankful for the help that Kris gave.
In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into the now ongoing enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
