Through a partnership between the Miss Universe Philippines Organization and Save the Children Philippines, Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Celeste Cortesi recently visited the Municipalities of Marantao and Marawi City to campaign for Save the Children’s Life Changer Program.
The program aims to support the children and families most impacted by inequality and discrimination in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
Miss Universe Philippines Charity 2022 Pauline Amelinckx and Miss Charm Philippines 2022 Annabelle Mcdonnell were also part of the trip. The group visited Rana-Ranao Elementary School where a temporary learning space was inaugurated to provide additional access to learners from remote villages.
The queens also visited the Rameemah Economic Hub and Youth Development Center, and the Sama Bajau community in Iligan City.
Capping off their two-day visit, Iligan City Mayor Fredrick Siao hosted a fundraising luncheon to benefit Save the Children’s Life Changer program, which aims to uplift the lives of 15,000 people, including 3,000 children, in Mindanao.
