Pauline Lopez starts drive for girls affected by COVID-19 pandemic


Pauline Lopez of Ateneo is doing her part to help out girls in vulnerable communities that are suffering in the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“As we all come to terms with the reality of COVID-19 and staying at home to save lives, I am choosing to stand with all girls who are not lucky enough to have food security, a safe shelter that is free from abuse and violence and who are unable to access education,” said Lopez, who took a leave of absence from Ateneo during the last academic year to focus on the Southeast Asian Games and the Olympic Qualifying Tournaments.

Lopez, who won gold in the featherweight division of the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Taekwondo tournament, teamed up with fellow 2019 SEA Games gold medalist Joane Orbon of Karate and FundLife International.

FundLife has been providing food relief to families since March.

To further talk about the program, Lopez and Orbon will host an Instagram live session on Saturday, 10:00 AM.

“I am using my platform #StandWithGirls and raise awareness for all girls who are living in poverty and/or are at risk of violence in the place where they should feel the safest—their homes.”
