The Cebuana singer believes that LoveYourself is a good organization that needs to be supported.
She said the launching of the treatment center and youth empowerment hubs can raise awareness on the cause.
“Education can prevent any escalation of the disease as the saying goes, prevention is better than cure,” she added.
The 23-year-old singer also hopes that Filipinos will work together to raise awareness.
“I wish to applaud the work of LoveYourself White House Treatment Center. White is a sign of purity that is doing crucial work; a work that must continue. So, I say to you all… success is a national effort and life goes on whether you are reactive or non-reactive,” she added.
Karencitta is the singer behind popular songs, “Cebuana”, “No Apology”, and “BamBamBam.”
Currently, she is under Viva Artist Agency. She is part of the upcoming dance film, “Indak” with Nadine Lustre and Sam Concepcion. /dbs
