MANILA -- Kris Aquino and her family have been staying at a resort in Puerto Galera, ever since they decided to self-isolate due to Bimby having a fever more than week ago. 

And while there, she decided to do some good and donate a cavan of rice for each of the barangays in the municipality, aiming to help the frontliners who are fighting against the coronavirus. 

She revealed it this Thursday, sharing a photo on Instagram of a post from city officials in Puerto Galera thanking her for the charity effort. 

"Was shown this earlier," she wrote as the caption. "Thank you sa ngiti dahil na-appreciate ang konting effort; I am aware blessed kami nila kuya Josh & Bimb kasi meron kaming pwedeng maitulong." 

She went on to list down the realizations she had from self-isolation, saying: "Marami akong natututunan sa buhay probinsya, lalo na tungkol sa realidad sa 'resort” town.'"

"Ang mga residents may mga maliit na taniman ng gulay sa kanilang mga bahay pero walang palayan na malapit, kaya mahalaga talaga ang supply ng bigas. Masakit sa puso kasi dapat ngayon ang PEAK SEASON ng mga Galerans for tourism.

"I believe we find ourselves in a specific area at a specific time as part of God’s plan," she mused. 

Aquino's first post that she was in Puerto Galera self-isolating with her kids was back in March 20. She considered doing it because Bimby had a fever. She later on said Bimby was diagnosed with respiratory infection and bronchial asthma, and not pneumonia.

Of her good will towards those in Puerto Galera, Aquino said that she expects nothing in return for the cavans of rice. 

"I am no longer active in entertainment, nobody in my immediate family is in politics, so for me this makes it all the more REAL— walang inaasahang kapalit, nakikiisa lamang sa mga kapwa Pinoy. 

"Paulit ulit ako --laban nating lahat ito at importanteng magtulungan sa abot ng makakaya. 

"Hindi ko rin naman kayang maging panatag ang loob dahil lang okay kaming tatlong mag-iina, habang napakaraming naghihirap, kaya nagsusumikap na makaambag kahit papaano. 

"I was never raised to be selfish, I was always taught to SHARE."
