Please watch the entire #BeautyWithAPurpose video featuring Miss World Philippines Katarina Rodriguez below and be touched with her project for the devastated City of Marawi.
But before you click, here are just a few sidelights that went into the filming of the same:
1) The part in the beginning where Katja is walking is ground zero of the Marawi Crisis. It is not safe until now since inside those houses and buildings are mines that still remain unexploded.
2) The church shown on Day 3 is the established fortress of ISIS which has an underground dwelling.
3) Katja wrote the script all by herself with just a few edits from Benj Gabitan because of the sheer length of her writings.
4) Katja thought of this even before winning Miss World Philippines. Last year, she already started raising funds from Katarina’s Closet and Bazaar which was donated to “Save The Children for Marawi”.
