It appears an A-list Hollywood actress visited Cebu recently, and it was not for a vacation but for charity work in the slum areas of the city. Lara Tan of CNN Philippines reported that Australian actress Margot Robbie dropped by the Queen City of the South to chop carrots, prepare Baguio beans and stir a pot of porridge.
Rise Above Foundation Cebu project manager Elisabet Hansen revealed through a Facebook post that she met the “Suicide Squad” actress while she was on her way back to Cebu from Manila. Hansen said she talked with the actress and it resulted to a feeding sponsorship where Robbie and her friends helped in the preparation, cooking and serving of food for the children.
Hansen added that the actress and her friends accompanied the Rise Above Foundation Cebu team to hand out meal tickets in depressed areas of the city. She added that she is hoping that the story will serve as an inspiration for other people to do kind deeds as well as “support good causes.”
Aside from lending a hand in the activity, the actress also implored her Instagram followers to either give a donation to Rise Above Foundation Cebu or to sponsor a feeding and lend a hand in cooking for the children. She indicated on her post that £100 can feed 400 hungry children.
