Ngayong Sabado, November 14, ang 24th birthday ni Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo.
Sa kanyang Instagram kagabi, November 13, inihayag ni Rabiya ang labis na pag-aalala para sa mga nabaha ng dulot ng mapanirang magkasunod na bagyo.
Nanawagan din siya sa mga kapwa niya Ilonggo na tulungan siyang makalikom ng sapat na pondo para maipamigay sa mga nawalan ng bahay at kabuhayan.
Mensahe ni Rabiya, "Tomorrow will be my 24th birthday but I cannot be fully happy knowing some victims of Typhoon Rolly and Ulysses have nothing to eat or wear.
"To all Ilonggos, I’m asking for your support in my Donation Drive on my birthday in any kinds (No clothing for sanitary purposes).
"For those who are interested to donate you can contact me or Miss Air 09176053868.
"All donations gathered will be delivered to the victims of typhoon around Metro Manila.
"In the darkest moment, don’t be afraid to be a helping hand to those people who needed it the most."
HEAVY FLOODING IN CAGAYAN AND ISABELA
Hindi raw masyadong makapagdiwang ng kanyang kaarawan si Rabiya ngayong araw dahil sa pagputok naman ng balita ukol sa malawakang pagbaha sa mga lalawigan ng Cagayan at Isabela.
Kaya umapela rin siya sa mga may mabubuting puso ng donasyon para sa mga biktima.
Nakalagay sa kanyang post, "I can’t completely celebrate and be happy on my birthday today knowing the situation of some Filipinos in Cagayan.
"That’s why I wanna ask help from everybody with a generous. Any amount will do. Please contact 09176053868 for more details.
"All donations will be distributed for the benefit of our brothers and sisters in Cagayan and around Metro Manila who were greatly affected by Typhoon Ulysses and Rolly.
Lalaban tayo, Pilipinas!"
"A CHALLENGING YEAR"
Ayon kay Rabiya, "challenging year" ang 2020 para sa ating lahat.
Wish daw niyang maging maayos ang kanyang kalusugan upang magampanan ang mga tungkulin niya bilang Miss Universe Philippines.
Saad niya, "2020 is quite a challenging year for most of us but I can say that God had blessed me with so much than I even prayed for.
"All that I’m asking now is good health so I can fulfill my duty and responsibility as Miss Universe Philippines.
"As I walk towards another chapter, I just wanna thank everyone who helped me grow as a person and as a woman. I will make sure to live a life full of hope, love and humility.
"I will always choose to build others and help them in the best possible ways that I can."
Kasalukuyang nasa Iloilo si Rabiya para sa kanyang homecoming.
