As for the national pageant, Trizha’s advocacy is in providing medical attention to remote areas where it is greatly needed. In both of their clinics (in Baguio and La Trinidad) and during medical missions, their services are free consultation, fasting/blood sugar testing and ECG. She believes that basic healthcare services are supposed to be accessible and affordable to the young and old alike.
During this quarantine period, Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Trizha Ocampo of La Union has focused on self-healing and spending time with her family. She lives with her sister – who is a doctor intern in a government hospital in Baguio – so she is very strict when it comes to going out and getting in contact with others since their clan has a medical history of pneumonia and asthma. Ever since their mother passed away, everyone has been busy with schoolwork and careers.
When it comes to La Union, she has been participating in Online Fundraising Concerts of the La Union Events Suppliers. The aim is to raise funds for basic needs of those who have no income because of the no-work-no-pay salary arrangement. She may not be staying in LU right now, but she uses whatever influence she has on social media to be of valued help.
Like the time the local hospital in Agoo was in dire need of PPEs. The frontliners there have been DIY-ing their own. So I reached out to whoever could help in a fundraising to provide PPEs. It was a blessing that my fellow candidate Ericka Evangelista saw her post, hence, getting precious donation from their Barya Ni Juan project.
Now that Baguio is under the less restricted GCQ, the services in their clinics will resume with strict precautions and in compliance to the government’s guidelines.
