  • Congratulatory messages poured in for actress Liza Soberano who is the newest face of the Philippine counterpart of the Save the Children organization.

    The 23-year-old actress on Thursday announced her new role as the organization’s ambassador on her social media accounts, where she said she is “proud and honored” for the opportunity.

    “I have actually been a silent supporter of this organization since 2016 and when I discovered them online… I started sponsoring some kids in Uganda and from there, I think around 2018, late 2018, I discovered Save the Children Philippines through my niece and my good friends,” Soberano shared in a video.

    Soberano added that she did two projects for the organization before.

    “I myself have witnessed the change that they have brought upon children and their lives and I can attest to all of the good that they have been doing and you can really guarantee that their best interests are for the children,” she said.

    The actress also shared that she is “looking forward to doing a lot of fieldwork” in her new role.

    “There’s nothing more grounding and heartwarming than seeing the look on people’s faces when you give them just the simplest of assistance. Maybe financial or you’re just showing them that you’re physically and mentally there to support them,” Soberano said.

    Save the Children also made the same announcement on its Facebook page.

    “As we mark our 40th year in the Philippines, we are pleased to welcome and introduce Liza Soberano as our newest Save the Children Ambassador,” the organization said.

    Soberano’s followers congratulated her on her new endeavor.

    Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez was among those who greeted her.

    “Welcome to the @SaveChildrenPH family Hopie,” the beauty queen wrote in response to her tweet with a heart emoji.

    Rodriguez was the first ambassador of the organization’s Philippine counterpart in 2019.

    “Sobrang proud ako sayo. ” another Twitter user wrote in response to Soberano’s post.

    “Congratulations, Hopie. I can’t think of a better ambassador,”shared a fan.

    Soberano has been vocal in advocating for women and children’s rights amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    In May last year, she spoke up against the online sexual exploitation of children in a webinar.

    The actress also talked about the “tragedies and hardships” happening to women and children in a webinar by Gabriela Youth in October 2020.

    Save the Children is the world’s leading independent children’s organization dedicated to protecting and supporting the youth, as well as speaking up for their rights.

    It was established in the United Kingdom to improve children’s lives through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as prove emergency aid in natural disasters and other conflicts. (J. Malasig, Interaksyon)
