Currently, Angel serves as PRC’s ambassador, and she has been active in the organization’s programs and activities.
It can be remembered that the actress helped PRC in its efforts to help the victims of the recent floods.
Moreover, when the pandemic started, Angel was among the first celebrities who initiated to help those who were affected by lockdown. Together with Anne Curtis, she raised funds for free mass testing. She also donated tents for medical frontliners and COVID-19 patients.
Angel was also included in Tatler Asia’s “Gen T List”. It distinguishes young leaders who are helping Asia mold a better future with their contribution to society. Among her philanthropic efforts which gained her recognition was her $300,000 donations for scholarships.
In 2019, Angel was recognized by Forbes Asia as one of Asia’s Heroes of Philanthropy.
She was also given the Jury Award for Humanitarian Citation from the 18th Gawad Tanglaw.
