Catriona Gray raises P1 million for Smokey Mountain families amid COVID-19




“To see situations with a silver lining.”

That was part of the beautiful answer of Ms. Catriona Gray when she won as Miss Universe in 2018, and at this time of crisis she is showing why she is a Ms. Universe.


Gray has helped raise $20,000 (about P1 million) which will be allotted for the rice of the families in Smokey Mountain in Manila that have been affected by the enhanced community quarantine as declared by the national government.
