Just like the rest of us, Mutya Buena and her younger sister Maria-Theresa (aka Ligaya) have been touched by the images of the Philippine typhoon victims – even more so as the two girls are of Irish and Filipino descent and have close ties to the country.

Posting a screenshot of her sister’s Facebook status on Instagram, Mutya showed her support for Ligaya’s plan to take aid to the affected area herself.

This hands-on approach to charity is something we could all do with. Good on Mutya and Ligaya for their efforts.
