While taking some time off from boxing, Filipino boxer Irish Magno has found ways to help the needy amid the coronavirus threat.

Magno, who recently qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, worked with her friends to repack rice which was distributed to the poor in Baguio City.

The boxer said in her Facebook post she could not have done it without the help of the kind-hearted people who aided in the donation.

"Maraming salamat po sa patuloy na sumusuporta sa amin para maging successful po ito," said Magno.

"Parami nang parami ang natutulungan natin dito sa Baguio kahit sa simpleng paraan lang. Sa kaunting halaga na itinulong n'yo maaraming pamilya na po ang ating nabigyan ng libreng bigas."
