One year after her passing, Gina Lopez’s legacy lives on. A legacy of giving. A legacy of love.
ABS-CBN commemorates the death anniversary of Gina Lopez, launches a book on her life and works
ABS-CBN Corporation and ABS-CBN Foundation (AFI) commemorate the first death anniversary of Gina Lopez with a month-long celebration of her legacy which will be showcased on their various cable TV programs and digital platforms.
The celebration will be capped by the launch of the book, “I Am Gina,” written by Jenie Chan. The book reveals many untold stories of her life as a missionary in Africa and India, and her struggles and victories when she implemented landmark humanitarian programs in the Philippines.
A known environmentalist and philanthropist, Gina Lopez served the Philippine government as Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. She was the managing director of ABS-CBN Foundation who pioneered important projects in the Philippines like Educational Television (ETV), Bantay Bata 163, the reforestation of the La Mesa Watershed, and the cleanup of the Pasig River.
“The encompassing message of Gina’s life and works is about love -- love for children, love for the environment and love for country and humankind.
In these difficult times brought about by the pandemic, it is the hope of the Foundation, that the lessons shared by the life of Gina Lopez would inspire people to never lose hope and to “trust in the Divine”.
Let us continue the legacy of Gina Lopez. Support ABS-CBN Foundation International.
