  • Gina Lopez-chairman of ABS-CBN Foundation
  • “We will miss Gina’s light, as a private person, as a leader, and as a crusader”

Today, we lost not just a family member but a person we deeply admire and respect.

My cousin Gina Lopez, chairman of ABS-CBN Foundation, lived her life with overflowing love and passion to serve.

At an age when people are just figuring out what they want to do in life, she already knew her purpose.

She left a comfortable life to devote her time and energy to help uplift other people’s lives.

When she returned to join ABS-CBN, she instilled in her people the same drive to help.

For her, nothing cannot be done, no effort is too small, anybody can — and should — do their part in making the world a better place.

Like only she could, she would unite private organizations, local government units, the police and military, to join her projects and campaigns.

May it be to rescue victims of child abuse, save a watershed, stop the destruction of the environment, clean a river, or help communities stand on their own by turning them into eco-tourism sites.

All of these she did out of love, and with love, as she believed love to be the strongest force for change.

We will miss Gina’s light, as a private person, as a leader, and as a crusader.

While she left us a void that cannot be filled, we take comfort in knowing that with love, like she had shown us, there remains hope and beauty in the world we live in.

Mark Lopez
Chairman, ABS-CBN Corporation
