Liza Soberano has once again used her platform to voice out her concerns for the needy and helpless as Metro Manila and neighboring cities (or “NCR Plus”, as the government calls it) has been put in a “General Community Quarantine bubble”.
The Kapamilya star wondered if the Philippines is capable of providing stimulus to aid the poor as done in other countries like the United States.
“My heart bleeds for all the people who cannot afford not to go out and work. They literally have to choose between dying of starvation or dying of COVID. Is our country really this poor to no be able to provide stimulus? Genuine question lang po,” she tweeted last Monday, March 22.
The “Alone/Together” actress worries for the workers who are forced to still go out and work amid the new restrictions made and especially, the rising COVID-19 cases in the area.
“America has received two rounds of stimulus already, waiting on the third. COVID testing is free, vaccination is free. Where is the support for the poor in our country? Madali lang naman po mag-stay at home if everyone has food on the table and money to pay the bills,” Liza added.
When a follower replied that she shouldn’t be comparing the Philippines to first-world countries, Liza responded: “So what do we do? Just sit back and wait for a miracle to happen? Pray that COVID just disappears? I believe God works wonders, but I believe that he gives us the instruments to make that happen. Sad thing is the instruments/decision-making are not in our hands.
Then she ended the night saying, “Hay, I honestly don’t even know if my tweets/my voice is actually doing anything. We can only pray for compassion now. Good night everyone! God bless all of you. Stay home if you can.”
