Former Miss Universe Gabriela Isler Returns To The Philippines For Charity Work
Venezuelan beauty queen Gabriela Isler this week returned to Coron for a charity mission in partnership with Cordaid.
Gabriela, who was crowned Miss Universe in 2013, was one of the first to visit the area after it was hit by super typhoon Haiyan. She raised $250,000 for the people affected by the devastating storm through the Miss Universe Relief Foundation.
“That first visit to Coron helped me appreciate, transform and realize my role in helping others through charity”, the beauty queen was quoted as saying in an official Cordaid news release.
Cordaid, in partnership with the Miss Universe Relief Foundation, has helped improve water and environmental management in Malawig. They also provide support for alternate sources of livelihood like basket weaving using the local pandan plant.
