Kamakailan lang nag viral sa social media ang larawan ng batikang actor na si John Regala dahil sa sitwasyon nito ngayon. Nakita ito na nakaupo sa sulok at utal na magsalita dahil may sakit itong Liver Chirrhosis.
Agad naman itong tinulungan ng mga netizen at idinala sa maayos na lugar. Bumuhos ang supporta para kay John Regala galing sa mga kaibigan at dating kasamahan nito sa industriya, isa na dito si Nadia Montenegro kinuwento ng isang netizen sa social media ang pangyayari kung saan bumisita ang mga kaibigan ng actor.
Labis din siyang pasasalamat dahil meron pa din mga kaibigan na handang tumulong sayo kahit may iba’t- ibang priority na ito sa buhay at kahit may pandemic pa tayong nararanasan ngayon.
An afternoon well spent.
I got a call from kuya Reb Belleza to ask me to see Mr. John Regala so yesterday I visited him at his place to check on his condition and extend our support. Since 2015, he has been under the care of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) where he is a member and up to now, they have been looking after his well-being.
I was met by his dear friends, actress Ate Nadia Montenegro Pla and Celebrity Journalist/ talent manager Aster A. Amoyo who were also there to reach out and provide him with the assistance that he might need. I was also told that Chuckie Dreyfus helped in gathering support for kuya John. It’s so incredible to see industry people come together to help one another in times like these. Kahit may kanya-kanyang priorities, basta sa panahon ng krisis, nandyan tayo para sa isa’t isa.
I am happy to share that Kuya John is ok but he requires medical assistance. Doc Poch, our ever-reliable doctor from Volunteer Corps PH was there to give him a check-up and assess his medical condition. Arrangements were made to address his immediate needs, which includes regular visits by the doctor to provide him with IV fluids to keep him hydrated and nourished since his liver problem makes him lose his appetite. There was an outpour of support coming from fellow actors in the industry to make sure he is well taken care of. Being a witness to all these, I can’t help but say to myself, “there’s hope.”
This experience has been truly humbling. I’m almost four years in as head of FDCP, and since day one, we never stopped working to serve the film industry and the country. But while the agency has done so much as it is, it’s still not enough.
Ang dami pa ring kailangang gawin at sistema na dapat iimplement para matulungan ang LAHAT ng sector at workers. Ang daming kailangan ayusin. Sanay pa rin ang lahat sa kanya-kanya at paghihilahan pababa.
Despite the divisiveness, I hope we can find common ground so we can work together. The film industry is an ecosystem, and we need all the sectors working together to thrive.
Sa lahat ng tumulong at patuloy na tumutulong kay Mr. John Regala, maraming salamat.
