John Lloyd Cruz made a rare public appearance in Cebu City to extend help to a local barangay amid the COVID-19 enhanced community quarantine.
Wearing shorts, slippers and a white shirt, the actor showed up at the checkpoint of Barangay Guadalupe on Wednesday to the surprise of local officials manning the area.
Guadalupe Barangay Captain Michael Gacasan was asked by John Lloyd what kind of assistance can he further offer to residents in need, The Freeman reported.
The actor was able to provide vitamins for children, the report also said.
Confirmed to be currently residing in Barangay Guadalupe, John Lloyd has reportedly chosen to live in Cebu to stay close to his son Elias with former girlfriend and Cebuana actress Ellen Adarna.
During a recent telethon interview, the actor said he has been busy looking after his son during this quarantine period, among other things.
“Sa ngayon, pinipinta ko pa rin mga pangarap ko pa rin. Konting basa-basa. Pero naka establish na rin tayo ng sariling routine natin dito. Kasi bago pa nangyari yung paglaganap ng virus, andito na ako sa Cebu nun. Bandang Pebrero pa, andito na ako sa Cebu, nag-aalaga ng bata, gawaing bahay,” he said.
He also shared that he can speak and understand a little Cebuano now. “Makasabot man ako gamay (I can understand a little), pero kulang pa sa practice, dapat mas tatagal pa ako dito.” (READ:
