MANILA - KC Concepcion is spearheading a relief program to benefit survivors of the recent earthquakes in Nepal, which the 30-year-old actress visited in 2012 as part of a United Nations mission.

On Instagram, Concepcion shared photos of her meetings with her collaborators, including in-demand photographer Mark Nicdao.

While Concepcion did not give details of the project to be launched in June, Nicdao said on Instagram that they will be selling photographs to raise funds.

Concepcion, a National Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nation's World Food Programme (UNWFP), was accompanied by Nicdao during her visit to Nepal two years ago.

Dozens were killed in the latest earthquake that hit May 12, bringing the overall death toll to more than 8,200 and compounding efforts for aid to reach remote areas in the Himalayan nation.
