Marian Rivera Keeps Her Promise

Marian Rivera fulfilled her promise to Cebuanos.

Rivera went back to Bantayan Island in Cebu to turnover 100 bangkas to the fishermen in the coastal town.

It took her one month, since the launching of Kapuso-Adopt-A-Bangka Project in January, to fulfill her commitment to the Cebuanos.

The actress wanted to help them rebuild their lives after Typhoon Yolanda displaced thousands of people in the Visayas.

In an interview, she said the long travel going to Bantayan Island paid off as soon as she saw the completion of a promise.

The actress thanked everyone who made the endeavor a reality.

She said that it was just the beginning of the campaign as they plan to continue the project until they provide enough means of livelihood to the locals.

Aside from the 100 bangkas delivered in Bantayan, GMA Regional TV also conducted fishing trainings and taught residents alternative ways of earning a living.

Rivera said that their help will extend beyond the distribution of the bangkas.

They plan to monitor and check the community after five months and from time to time.

Rivera is happy to be part of the rebuilding efforts of the people of Cebu and said that it is also her way of paying forward the blessings she has received over the years.

Aside from the Adopt-A-Bangka Project, Rivera is also involved in various GMA Regional events since middle of last year.

Marian said she enjoys touring the Philippines and it is her chance to reciprocate the love and support she received from the fans.

As of this posting, the Kapuso Primetime Queen had already participated in over 20 regional events of GMA-7 and plans to continue doing so.
