MANILA -- Last Father's Day, in honor of her late dad, Ninoy Aquino, she promised to help some Filipinos struggling in this COVID-19 pandemic get back up on their feet. 

 

And it looks like Kris Aquino is beginning to make good on her word, sharing this Friday that she has started purchasing laptops that she will be giving away to those in need. 

"Lahat ng magulang ang hangarin mapagtapos sa pag-aaral, maging maganda ang kinabukasan, at maging masaya ang mga anak nila," she wrote in her post, upped on Facebook. 

Aquino, a mother herself to two kids, explained that her fans had been asking her for laptops, presumably parents who are at a loss over how to provide their children with the devices they need for online classes as schools remain closed due to COVID-19. 

Aquino said that she bought eight laptops so far, and is planning to give them away on Wednesday, July 1, during a stream. 

"I want to invest in the FUTURE of the Philippines," she said. "Para ito sa kinabukasan ng ating mga anak -- helping their EDUCATION."

Lack of devices has been a concern for many, after physical classes have been discouraged to avoid exposing students, teachers and other school personnel to COVID-19. 

The school year is scheduled to start on August 24. 

Aquino is not the first celebrity to give away devices to help struggling students. 

Last month, Heart Evangelista sold an artwork of hers to purchase tablets to give away.
