Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto extended his gratitude to actresses Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis for their generous donation to boost the city's efforts against COVID-19.
Earlier today, April 12, Mayor Vico said in a Facebook Live video that the two stars donated one million pesos, which they raised through a celebrity auction.
According to the Mayor, they were one of the local governments that the two actresses have picked, apart from Manila, Baguio, Taguig, and Quezon City. They also donated to the Philippine Red Cross.
"Dinonate nila ito walang fanfare, walang media. Ni hindi nga kami nagkita. Iniwan lang nila 'yung tseke," he recalled.
"Thank you sa lahat nang tumutulong, nagmamalasakit, alam ko man o hindi," he added.
Mayor Vico said that he will use the donation to purchase more COVID-19 vaccines for their city.
"Idadagdag po natin 'yan sa vaccination fund natin," he declared. "I-earmark lang po natin kasi sa ngayon wala pa pong bagong manufacturer na puwedeng pag-orderan."
The city has already begun its COVID-19 vaccination program last month starting with the medical frontliners, followed by senior citizens and persons with comorbidities.
They have already ordered more AstraZeneca vaccines, but they has yet to be delivered.
"Hopefully, dumating na by third o fourth quarter," he said.
