“Sinikap namin na makapagbigay ng mga relief packs na may lamang mga espesyal na pagkain at goodies na malapit sa puso ko. Ito yung nagbibigay sa akin ng saya nung bata pa ako pag may nagbibigay ng ganito,” said Verzosa, who extended help through Frontrow Cares.

(We are trying our best to give relief packs containing special food items and goodies close to my heart. These things put joy in my heart when I was still a kid — when somebody gave me like these.)

Also present during the distribution of relief goods were Rep. Antonio “Tonypet” T. Albano (1st District, Isabela) and Miss Universe Spain 2022 official candidate Ms. Alicia Faubel. 

“Dati na namin itong ginagawa. Kahit before pa mag pandemic. Ngunit grateful ako na ngayong representative na ako ng Tutok to Win party-list ay lalo tayong nabigyan ng pagkakataon na maging boses ng mga naghihirap at naghihikahos nating mga kapwa Pilipino,” said Verzosa.

(We’ve been doing this a long time ago. Even before the pandemic. But now I am grateful that when I became Tutok to Win party-list representative, I was given a chance to be the voice of our fellow Filipinos who are marginalized.)
