Crowned Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray visited children orphaned by the campaign against illegal drugs in St. Peter’s Parish, Quezon City on Wednesday during her Charity Day.As Catriona strolled in, children under the Program for Orphans — a platform under the church ministry Abot Kamay Alang-alang sa Pagbabago (AKAP) Pamilya Program — enfolded Catriona and offered her roses.
During the event, Catriona said to the children, “Never forget that you are loved and wanted, and that God loves you.”She added that in spite of everything, the children are blessed to have found a family among the community that supports them.
As the children performed a dance number for the beauty queen, Catriona also danced with the children.As the event came to a close, Catriona made sure to bond with the children on a personal level. Afterwards, she handed good and gifts to the kids of AKAP before saying farewell. AKAP Pamilya only has four centers where the children can seek refuge, and are mainly established in North Quezon City.
