Star for all Seasons Vilma Santos has given a donation to the Vilma Santos Solid International (VSSI) to be used for the financial assistance of its sick members, according to VVSI president Jojo Lim.
In a report by PEP today, August 1, the award-winning actress expressed appreciation to Jojo, because through his leadership, the VSSI has become an avenue to help Vilmanians in need.
Fondly called by fans as “Ate Vi,” the Batangas representative said that there are a lot of Vilmanians who are sick and old, but still show their love and support for her craft. Her giving back to the organization is but a little token for all the efforts they have done for her.
“'Yun naman kasi ay suporta ko na rin. Alam natin na sa tinagal-tagal ko na sa industriya, napakaliit na bagay 'yun,” Ate Vi said.
She also said that even though she is not so active in showbiz anymore, her fans are still consistent. She said, “Pero kahit sa pagiging mayor ko, kasama ko na sila. Nung governor ako, kasama ko pa rin sila. Walang mga cameras 'yun, ha?”
And even now that she's a congresswoman, her fans have nothing but unwavering support for her.
Vilma most recently starred in the award-winning film "Everything About Her."
