Nadine Lustre has been residing in Siargao for most of 2021, even calling it her home base and only travelling to Manila when she has to work. When she could’ve stayed safely in the comforts of Manila while Typhoon Odette was happening, she returned to Siargao by traveling 6 six hours in a pump boat just to help the island’s residents. She was even spotted buying all the solar panels in one hardware store just to help in streamlining the communication and signal. Can we also talk about how she’s been amplifying calls for help for the people of Vis-Min on social media? And that’s on Darna behavior.
