COUPLE CARMELA TUNAY, KIM FAJARDO HELP EARTHQUAKE-HIT HOMETOWN ON CHRISTMAS DAY
Volleyball power couple Carmela Tunay and Kim Fajardo give back to earthquake victims after the magnitude 6.3 earthquake rocked Batangas on the morning of Christmas.
The season of giving resonated a little extra for Tunay and Fajardo as they personally prepared and distributed care packages in Barangay Quilitisan in Calatagan, Batangas.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said the magnitude 6.3 quake hit at 7:43 am had a depth of 74 kilometers, and was tectonic in origin. The epicenter was west of the municipality of Calatagan.
Moreover, setter Fajardo is a native of Calatagan.
“Toughest year yet, we can all relate,” said Petron Blaze standout Tunay.
“But we cannot be grateful enough to the man up there for keeping [us] and our families and loved ones, safe and healthy.”
The couple shared a photo thread on their personal Instagram accounts where the two of them can be seen doing the little charity work they did, with them personally packing and distributing the goods to their beneficiaries.
“We, together with our families, were able to gather goods to give less fortunate families as our little way of paying it forward,” the former UST Lady Tigresses’ star continued.
“[We’re] paying it forward kahit sa maliit na paraan. Maligayang Pasko po sa lahat,” said Tunay in her caption.
