The star of The General's Daughter made a surprise visit to the provincial capital of Catarman and the town of Allen, some of the hardest hit by Typhoon "Tisoy."
Netizens called Angel "a real angel," "ang tunay na Darna," and "a real-life superhero." Some of the photos featured candid shots of the actress buying relief goods in a supermarket.
On December 3, Angel was named one of Forbes' "2019 Heroes of Philanthropy," for her significant contributions to social issues in Asia.
Angel has been a big advocate of relief efforts, helping victims of calamities, violence, and conflict in Mindanao. She's been known to do these without any publicity or media coverage.
This 2019, she was spotted buying relief goods in Davao for earthquake victims (she donated one million pesos to Mindanao), and she also skipped the ABS-CBN Ball to instead donate the money she would have spent to Bantay Bata.
What a heart of gold!
