Vice President Leni Robredo praised Kapamilya actor Enchong Dee for helping his fellow Filipino citizens in this time of COVID-19 pandemic.
Robredo commended the actor for doing volunteer work without being publicizing it.
She also added that Dee sometimes comes to the Office of the Vice President (OVP) without making announcements just to give food to other volunteers.
“May mga artista na silently, very very silently tumutulong. Example, si Enchong. Si Enchong hindi lang nagso-solicit din ng pamigay, hindi lang ‘yun,” the Vice President said in her recent interview with G3 San Diego.
“Lalo nung early days bigla na lang mag-aappear sa opisina namin may dalang merienda para sa mga volunteers, siya ang nagdadrive sa sarili niya,” Robredo added.
She recalled that Dee once volunteered with his acquaintance to disinfect the VP’s office to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the place.
“Three weeks ago siguro, nagsabi si Enchong na magvo-volunteer daw siya. May kilala siya o partner na nagdi-disinfect ng opisina. Kasi alam n’ya na ang daming pumupunta sa opisina,” Robredo said.
Robredo was amazed by the actor’s willingness and genuine intention to help clean the office even though there were no other people around.
“So kami, nag-schedule kami 6 o’clock in the evening, wala na kaming lahat. Ta’s bigla na lang iyong security sa office nagpadala ng video. Si Enchong mismo ‘yung naglilinis.
“Siya mismo ‘yung naglilinis! Alam mo ‘yon, na wala naman makakakita sa kanya pero siya ang gumagawa. Parang for him to do that, more than what is expected,” the Vice President shared.
Unknown to many, the actor is one of those celebrities who have been helping his fellow Filipino citizens during this time of pandemic and crisis. Last April, Dee donated 500 personal protective equipment and food to the OVP.
He is currently starring in his first-ever digital series with on-screen partner Erich Gonzales, You. Me. Maybe., under their YouTube channel Enrich Originals during the quarantine.
