SOUTHEAST Asian Games gold medalists Jamie Lim and Agatha Wong also participated in the long list of Pinoy athletes helping out against COVID-19.
On their official Instagram account, Lim and Wong launched their own fundraiser themed “Puso: The Battle against COVID-19.”
Proceeds from the fund drive will go to suspected COVID-19 patients as well as health workers and frontliners of Quezon City and Philippine General Hospital.
Lim said they would also like to use their time to promote Karate and Wushu among the youth.
Lim added that this is the right time for the country’s athletes to live up to what they always say “Para sa bayan,” as she said these words are not just measured for playing for the people.
Her fellow SEA Games gold medalist Agatha Wong also supported Lim’s statement and she also wanted to do her part for the country in the midst of the pandemic.
