In a recent appearance on Malacanang’s regular briefing online, Willie Revillame shared the panel with presidential spokesperson Harry Roque and sought help on how he could help alleviate the problem of jeepney drivers who have no means of livelihood during the pandemic period.

Addressing the presidential spokesperson, Willie reiterated his willingness to extend help and announced he was donating P5M of his own earnings for the jeepney drivers. “Nabanggit ko sa inyo dati na gusto kong tumulong. Ngayon, sa sarili kong pinagipunan dahil ako naman po ay may trabaho ngayon, siyempre napakahirap, gusto kong tumulong una doon sa mga jeepney drivers.”

With the recent explosion in Beirut, Lebanon claiming the lives of four overseas Filipino workers, Willie also revealed he was giving P100,000 each to the affected families. “Nabasa ko yung nangyari sa Beirut. Para pag tutulong, lubus-lubusin mo na, yung apat na pamilya po na naulila, I’m willing to give P100,000 each sa mga kababayan natin. I am willing to give sa aking naipon at hindi naman po ito pagmamayabang. Ito lang ang puwede ko maitulong sa gobyerno kasi hindi naman ako puwede lumapit kay Mr. President na ito ang ibibigay ko, hindi maganda tingnan. Siguro sa inyo na lang, ang balak ko po ay magbigay ng P5 million ngayon sa araw na ito at handa ako, at ibibigay sa mga jeepney driver na talagang namamalimos na,” Revillame said.
