INSPIRING: Former ‘Darna’ Nanette Medved donates classrooms to Marawi kids

Former Darna Nanette Medved-Po, who was the lead on Joel Lamangan’s 1991 Darna movie, has become a real-life superhero as she donated 8 classrooms to the young students of war-stricken Marawi City.

She shared this on Instagram.

“So happy to be able to turn over 8 classrooms here in Marawi today,” she captioned her post.

“Thank you to the Maranao for your heartwarming hospitality especially given the circumstances,” she said.

Along with Nanette, this feat was made possible by Generation HOPE, the social enterprise Nanette founded and currently heads. The profits from HOPE’s water bottles help build classrooms nationwide.

In a separate Instagram post, Nanette wrote in the comments section others who needed to be thanked for this achievement.

“Many companies and people make our classrooms possible – not just me. Marawi was brought to you by 7/11, Uber, Selecta, PC&V, Haresh Hiranand and millions of consumers who make the choice everyday to support public schools by buying Hope,” she said.
