MANILA -- KC Concepcion on Wednesday clarified that her work with the United Nations isn't just for promotions.

"Akala nila ay parang nagpo-promote ka lang, parang nage-endorse ko lang," she said in an interview on "Kris TV."

"We go on the field at kapag sinabi talagang you risk your life, totoo talaga," she added, as she recalled some of her trips as an ambassador for the UN's World Food Programme.

"First mission ko pa lang sa Cotabato, binomba 'yung runway, hindi ba? Tapos 'yung sa Africa, Basilan, nag-bullet vest din kami, 'di kami maka-stop ng car kasi dapat tuloy-tuloy... Hindi ko lang kinukwento," she said.

The actress explained that they want to reach more people who are in need. "Kailangan mo talagang puntahan 'yung malalayong lugar na hindi pinupuntahan ng regular na mga tao," she said.
