The Philippine bet has actively collaborated with the organization, relating that her goal is to make children’s voices heard on a large-scale platform.
She stated, “I’ve been working very closely with Save the Children Philippines which is an organization that focuses on eradicating hunger and malnutrition amongst children.
“I’ve been going to many remote places here in the Philippines. When you get to know the children and hear their stories, it touches your heart…
