The donation will be aimed towards providing food packs for vulnerable communities through Bayanihan Musikahan. The effort was achieved thanks to the Jesuits of the Philippine Province and De La Salle Brothers.

Bayanihan Musikahan is an initiative led by National Artist Ryan Cayabyab. The movement raises funds for “Manna packs” containing rice, munggo, and other food as well as “Ligtas COVID Kits” containing medical and health supplies. It benefits the urban poor of Metro Manila who continue to struggle under the enhanced community quarantine.
