The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected the lives of every Filipino as they struggle with socio- economic fallout and mental health issues. Amidst these challenging times, children are silently dealing with life- altering changes that are beyond their comprehension. For the fortunate ones, they are attend online classes from the safety and comfort of their own homes. However, there are those children who aren’t as lucky where even the most basic needs are not met. According to Save the Children Philippines, hunger among our children was already a huge problem as the numbers reveal.
According to Lia Andrea Ramos, Miss Universe Philippines Head of Women Empowerment & Charity, “This year, we decided to partner with Save The Children Philippines, an independent international children’s organization in the world. We recognize that health and nutrition as well as access to education are areas that need our attention especially during the time of pandemic. Save the Children has been in the country for 40 years and they have proven to implement sustainable and impactful programs to help improve lives of children in less
With this in mind, the Miss Universe Philippines Organization has chosen Save The Children Philippines and their “Hope For Their Future” Campaign to be its beneficiary for this year’s edition. A portion of the proceeds from the subscriptions and all the previous and upcoming voting will be donated to Save the Children Philippines. It is a partnership grounded on love for children that aims to inspire people to give hope for the children’s future.
The 30 Miss Universe Philippines delegates essentially become ambassadors for this worthy cause. They join three equally empowered women who are the official Save the Children Philippines Ambassadors, Liza Soberano, Ria Atayde and Katarina Rodriguez.Their journey to the crown becomes a much more meaningful experience knowing that they have truly made a difference in this hunger-fighting campaign. The past votes, votes in the Lazada app and the current subscriptions made through the KTX Season Pass proceeds help support Save the Children Philippines.
Miss Universe Philippines 2021 will hold an advocacy week dedicated to featuring inspiring stories of children who have benefitted from Save the Children Philippines. A highlight of the advocacy week is a Zoom session between Save the Children Philippines and the 30 Miss Universe Philippines delegates.
“Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. In the Philippines and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.” (Save the Children)

I am curious, is it just me or has anyone noticed that the Miss U Philippines National Director is MIA? Or did I miss any posts?
@ md11974 You missed no post. Uncle mentioned nothing of the matter*.
* – Clue : silver-lined SARS-CoV2 mask sponsor, connect dots…
Pauto na naman kayo. Wala ngang nangyari sa previous ek ek nila eh.
Kung ikaw hindi naniniwala, bakit nandito ka pa. Or if you don’t believe why exert effort to comment and read post about them.
Tahan na Caloy, di na babalik sa Binibini ang MUP franchise
Well, most of the children in the photo are way more photogenic and natural, and way better at projecting than some of the MUP contestants. lol.
This is a noble cause. Two thumbs up for MUP
Fake naman yang mga groups na yan.. like save the children, UNICEF, etc.. less than 10% of the budget accumulated actually goes to charitable works… It’s all business…
@ Closer2Fame And while we’re at it, ang eco-groups, daw, like Greenpeace ay napupulitika…
(Kaya, OK na rin siguro ME kasi though marami silang sponsorship offers na natatanggap ay sinasala naman nila ng mabuti at as much as possible ay tie-up with LGU’s ang ginagawa nila. Though I recall na nasangkot ata sa Senate investigation yung isang official ng MEO. Ikaw ba yung nag-comment nun dati?… Oh, well. I guess vested interests are everywhere and here to stay.)
Thank you MUPh for partnering with save the children
I hope it continues permanently even after the pageant
Thank you Kembular2020.
Uncle Norman, when does this ‘advocacy week’ kick off? It’s already the 17th, and Fri so their first week is drawing to a close…
That’s all they’re doing? Go on a zoom chat? Kahit bubble arrangement sila, they are already in Pampanga wala man lang kahit ‘day-with-kids’ of some sort? Parang yung feeding program nina John Adajar sa San Pablo (Laguna) nung pandemya last year (?). Review niyo na lang, po.
Puwede ring ibalik yung dating tradisyon sa MU na ‘little angels’ during the Finale, na nag-aabot ng flower sa Evening Dress Round. Or tulad nung MrW na si ALV ang nag-host, the orphanage beneficiary had some kids over to watch the Finale. Btw, kumusta na si Carlos Franco (Brazil)?
Because of the bubble, the organization cannot really take the risk of physically bringing kids to bond with the ladies, especially that the young ones are not allowed to leave their homes because of government restrictions. For now, the zoom setup will do. Once the new winners are crowned, then an actual face-to-face meeting can be safely arranged.
